The city is considered as the twin city of Hyderabad, which is just 8 kilometers away from it. Jointly, the 2 cities, Secunderabad and Hyderabad form the 6th largest conurbations in India. The region mostly having the rocky grounds along with the few hilly areas enjoys a tropical wet and dry climate with the certain fluctuations round the year.

Moreover, it has huge presence of army and air force personnel, making it one of the largest cantonments in the country.
Theology and Culture
The rich heritage including the cultural, social and architectural appearance of Secunderabad has a strong bearing from the invasion by the British as well as the influence of the ‘Nawabs’ from the neighborhood (Hyderabad). The inhabitants of all castes and creeds cohesively celebrate the festivals such as Diwali, Ugadi, Lumbini, Makar Sankranti, Vinayak Chaturthi, Muharrum and others with great enthusiasm. In fact, these festivities are incomplete without the folk music like ‘carnatic music’, traditional dances, art and drama. The mouth-watering Telugu cuisines of the city such as the ‘Hyderabdi Biryani’, ‘Lamb Kofta Curry’, ‘Dum Ka Kheema’, ‘Raw Banana Curry’, ‘Ghee Rice’, ‘Dil Khush’ and ‘Phirni’ are the must have for every local and the foreigner.
