Hyderabad: US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump's visit to India next week will not be just a trip to attend the business conclave as she will also be exploring this historic city of pearls.
Ivanka Trump, who is also the advisor to the US President, along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) on November 28 at Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC), located in Hitec City, the information technology hub housing many US tech giants. A business owner herself, she will also speak at a session with the theme 'Women first, prosperity for all'.
On evening of November 28, she will make a trip to Falaknuma Palace located on a hillock in the Muslim-majority old city of Hyderabad. She will not only attend the dinner being hosted by Modi but will also get an opportunity to see the opulent palace, a symbol of a long Muslim rule and culture.
Trump, along with Modi and top US and Indian officials, will dine at 101-seater dining table, one of the longest in the world and a key attraction of the palace, which served as the residence of Nizam, the ruler of erstwhile Hyderabad State.
Her visit to the old city might also include a sight-seeing trip to Charminar, the iconic symbol of Hyderabad and globally recognised monument, located about three km from Falaknuma and surrounded by densely populated neighbourhoods and dingy lanes.
For any tourist, a visit to Hyderabad is incomplete without Charminar. Trump is also likely to go for shopping at Laadbazar, a market famous for Lac bangles and bridal wear, at Charminar.
