The Statue of Equality in Hyderabad is a 216-foot-tall golden statue of the 11th century Bhakti Saint Sri Ramanujacharya (Ramanuja) and is one of the world's tallest metallic statues in sitting position, only second to Thailand's Great Buddha statue. It is situated on the 45-acre beautiful Jeeyar Integrated Vedic Academy (JIVA) campus at Muchintal Road, Palmakol, near Shamshabad on the city's outskirts. It radiates the persona of Sri Ramanujacharya, an icon of equality who was the torchbearer of Vaishnavism and a forerunner of the Bhakti movement.

Battery-operated vehicles are available at the complex.
The iconic temple, located in Palampet Village on the bank of Ramappa Lake in Mulugu District, is now India’s 39th World Heritage Site.

The sculptures, particularly those at the Temple, are excellent artistic representations of Kakatiya dance customs and cultural traditions. The temple is open every day from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. The road to this location is good, making it an easy destination to reach by car. Warangal, about 70 km away, is the closest city to the temple. The temple is about 15 km from Mulugu and about 210 km from Hyderabad.

Located in the Old City on the east bank of the Musi River, the Charminar is the most famous historical landmark in Hyderabad. The monument’s four fluted minarets built into the main structure have become a synonym for the city, much like ‘Eiffel Tower’ and ‘Big Ben’ are for Paris and London, respectively. The English name is a translation and combination of the Urdu words chār and minar or meenar, meaning ‘Four Pillars’; the eponymous towers are ornate minarets connected and supported by four massive arches. It is listed as an archaeological and architectural treasure on the official ‘List of Monuments’ compiled by the Archaeological Survey of India. It has been added to the ‘tentative list’ of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in its current state.
