Secunderabad is twinned with the city of Hyderabad, the latter being the fifth largest metropolis in India and the state capital of Andhra Pradesh. The two cities are popularly called 'Twin cities'. In common parlance however, Secunderabad is seldom used these days outside the twin cities. Instead 'Hyderabad' is used normally. Though they are called twins, the cities present different fusion of cultures with Secunderabad having developed under direct British rule until 1948, and the city of Hyderabad, as the capital of a princely state.
