Welcome to The Deccan Archive

Welcome to The Deccan Archive, a unique blog here for you to explore. The Deccan Archive is an initiative by a bunch of Hyderabadis with a vision to research, document and promote factually correct and historically accurate narratives of the Deccan. We strive to preserve the rich and varied heritage digitally, by creating an open-source archive of all available material in print, manuscripts, photographs, narratives, anecdotes, personal accounts or any other media.

We conduct weekend heritage walks to raise awareness amongst the masses and discovering neighborhoods that very much belong to the city yet are very much forgotten. We also try to preserve and document old books, photographs, video reels, manuscripts and the like. If you have any of these and would like our help, please get in touch with us.

We are always happy to meet like-minded individuals/groups/entities willing to collaborate/network with us. If you are one of those, do fill our contact form and we will get back to you.
