In 1798, an area north of Hussain Sagar lake was made a cantonment as a result of an alliance signed between the Nizam and the East India Company for military and political co-operation. The cantonment was named Secunderabad after the then Nizam Sikander Jah. It is a few kms. away from Hyderabad. This city has got a more contemporary look with a concentration of Anglo-Indians. It presents an attractive amalgam of old world charm together with the ebullience of growth and enterprise. Beautiful old edifices built in the medieval, Moghul, Colonial and Indo-Saracenic styles abound, rubbing shoulders with large glass and chrome temples of commerce. The famous Mahankali Temple near the Secunderabad Railway Station draws a large number of devotees especially during the Bonalu festival.
