About Secunderabad :
Sikandar-a-bad About this sound listen (help·info), popularly known as the twin
city of Hyderabad is located in the Indian state of Telangana. Named after
Sikandar Jah, the IIIrd Nizam of the Asaf Jahi dynasty, Secunderabad was
founded in 1806 AD as a British cantonment. Although Hyderabad and Secunderabad
are together referred to as the twin cities, they have both different histories
and cultures, with Secunderabad having developed directly under British rule
until 1948 and Hyderabad as the capital of the Nizams' princely
state.Geographically divided from Hyderabad by the Hussain Sagar, Secunderabad
is no longer a separate municipal unit and has become part of Hyderabad. Both
cities are collectively known as Hyderabad and together form the sixth largest
metropolis in India. Being one of the largest cantonments in India,
Secunderabad has a large army and air force presence.
founded as a British cantonment after the Hyderabad Nizam Asaf Jah II was defeated
at the hands of the British East India Company and was forced to sign the
Treaty of Subsidiary Alliance in the year 1798 AD.He had to sign the subsidiary
alliance treaty in order to gain the support of the British troops parked in
tents in the open areas of the maidan of the village Ulwul, north-east of
Hussain Sagar, the lake that separates Secunderabad from its twin city
Hyderabad. Later, in 1803, Nizam Sikandar Jah, the third Nizam of Hyderabad,
renamed Ulwul as Secunderabad after himself. The city was formed in 1806, after
the order was signed by the Nizam alloting the land north of Hussain Sagar to
set up the British Cantonment.The twin cities are separated by the man-made
Hussain Sagar lake, which was built during the reign of the Qutb Shahi dynasty
in the 16th century. Unlike Hyderabad, the official language of Secunderabad

1867.Secunderabad Railway Station one of the largest in India which is also the
