The Archaeological Survey of India officials have embarked on a mission to spruce up the historic and more than 400-year-old Charminar, which has been the symbol of the City of Pearls with all its grandeur. The maintenance staff have been entrusted the task of giving a fresh look to the great monument by first making minor repairs on the four minarets. Every effort is being made to clear the walls of all the graffiti as many of the visitors have often defaced them conveniently forgetting the historic value of the wonderful structure which reflects the grandeur of the Moghal emperors. Here is a compilation of  photographs showing the on-going activity in Hyderabad.
