Can someone who knows the subcontinent comment on whether Hyderabad (India) is so much more famous than Hyderabad (Pakistan) that it shouldn't be disambiguated? (Remember, it can't be just that it is more famous, it has to be lots more famous to almost all travelers, as in Paris vs Paris (Texas)). If none can explain that Hyderabad is incredibly famous relative to Hyderabad (Pakistan) I'll move it to Hyderabad (India) and make a disambiguation page. -- Hypatia 07:33, 11 Nov 2004 (EST)
Hyderabad, India is definitely more famous than its namesake in Pakistan, though certainly not to the degree of the two Paris' that you used as a relative comparison. In recent times, Hyderabad, India is mostly known for its IT industry, and is often referred to as the second Bangalore.
I'd say the India Hyderabad is famous enough... I didn't even know there was one in Pakistan, but you can't get to far in any book about Asia-- history or travel-- without knowing a lot about Hyderabad, India. I can't say it's as famous as Paris, cause, we'll I don't think there are a lot of people in the world who haven't heard of Paris, France, but I bet you could dig up a few who hadn't heard of either Hyderabad. Let me put it this way: if they've heard of a Hyderabad, they've heard of the on in India. Majnoona 10:31, 11 Nov 2004 (EST)
Hyderabad is famous for its
Ramoji Film city,
Note: There is another Hyderabad in Pakistan
Famous it may not be, but the other Hyderabad has a population of over 1.3 million, so I don't think we can pretend it doesn't exist. Jpatokal 23:56, 18 October 2006 (EDT)
The India Hyderabad is much more famous than the Pakistani one. Do a survey if you like. However, I agree that it shouldn't be disambiguated, there should be a link to the Pakistani one that's all. Upamanyuwikitravel 11:33, 14 January 2007 (EST)
It seems that Taxi services are very widespread in Hyderabad and not at all difficult to find. Therefore, listing large numbers of individual taxi services is against WT guidelines. I have cut the table out of the article of parked it here. Unless arguments to reinstate it are forthcoming in the next 30 days I will delete completely. --Burmesedays 05:00, 23 June 2011 (EDT)

Good start, but can we have more informative names for Hyderabad districts? These names like North Zone, South Zone, etc. make no sense to a traveller or even for a long term resident like me. I'd prefer we go with things like old city, Secunderabad, etc. Ravikiran 02:44, 3 July 2012 (EDT)
Well, the zones are actually the official GHMC names, South Zone could be Old City, North Could be Secunderabad and Cantonment. East, West and Central could be further broken down. The zones are way too big to have a proper name or content. Any suggestions on what the zones could be broken down to? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by HarshaDevulapalli (talk • contribs)
That would be better. We have an explicit policy of not deferring to official names if the official names make no sense to a traveller. My own mental division of Hyderabad - and note that this is not authoritative - is:
New City (Abids, Koti, Lakdi ka pul, everything that came up immediately after independence when the new capital came up)
Hi tech city and the posh areas - Jubilee Hills and Banjara Hills, and maybe Panjagutta (the "New New city", so to speak - of interest to mostly software engineers. )
Kukatpally, Ameerpet and all those areas to the west..
East, which I have never visited :)
Once again, this is *my* mental division, which is instructive only to understand how a long term outsider thinks of Hyderabad. Perhaps I am wrong about Ameerpet and Punjagutta and they should be included in New city.. I can't help much with East Hyderabad, because I've never been there - but all I will say is that just because the size of the area is huge, it doesn't necessarily have to be split up. Once again, think from the traveller's point of view.. Is there a lot to see and do there? Restaurants? Shopping? If the content is likely to get overloaded, then by all means split it up. If not, we can keep it as it is and wait for the content to accumulate and then split it later. — Ravikiran 22:12, 6 July 2012 (EDT)
