Nice shot. But whats the meaning of charminar?
The word's pronunciation is similar to persian. We say Char to the number 4, and Menar to the tall sylindric shape architectures make beside tombs and mousqes of muslims. Is that really have the same meaning? ( An architecture place that has 4 menars?)

@Soodabeh: Yes you are right, it is a monument with 4 pillars and this building very much a signature of Hyderabad.
