The history of Hyderabad defines it self as very historic. Hyderabad used to be a major Head Quarter of the British during their invasion of the Indian Sub Continent.
During the British assault many buildings and structures where built in Hyderabad which now a days are considered very historic. The ones worth mentioning include the Sindh University Old Campus, Basant Hall, Market Tower & the famous Kotri Bridge.
