After tea we were given a wonderful talk about Gota work, which is the intricate sewing of gold, silver, copper, and rose gold threads in various forms on clothing. There were two models who were in unique beautiful sarees with two forms of this beautiful handmade work. One of the dresses took one month to complete, 20 ladies working on it!!!

Later this afternoon we had high tea at the Faluknama Palace, which is one of the 35 palaces in the area still privately owned, and now a very high end hotel. It is perched very high on a peak and upside the Old City, with incredible views in all directions. Guests are bright from the gate to the hotel in horse drawn carriages, and then rose petals are tossed over the upper balcony to the stairs below, as you make your way up to register.

Today, Tuesday in Hyderabad, was another long hot one. We were taken by bus down into the Old City area to visit Charminar, which is considered the Centre of the city. It is under restoration at the moment, with one of the four minarets completed. We had a considerable walk through some tight streets of vendors selling everything from limes to bangles, to men’s wedding jackets, to shoes, very glitzy outfits and the list goes on. This is a more Islamic part of the city, so we were more modestly dressed, and limited on our use of cameras.

A long but wonderful day today at a craft village preceded by a traditional lunch on a banana leaf “plate” in a local banquet hall. A little retail therapy was good.
