Secunderabad, like its twin city Hyderabad has a number of tourist attractions. The city is small yet has tourist places that are worth visiting. Secunderabad was named after Sikander Jah, the third Nizam of the Asaf Jahi dynasty. Secunderabad had its own municipality and city government, until lately when it was merged with Hyderabad. In common vernacular however, Secunderabad is seldom used these days outside the twin cities. Hyderabad is normally used. Secunderabad has interesting places to see.
