    During Ramzan, worshippers gather at mosques for prayers till midnight, have a pre-dawn meal (Seher), and wake up early for morning prayers. Fasting is observed from dawn to dusk during the holy month, which is the ninth month of the Hijri calendar and considered the holiest month in Islam.

    Special arrangements this year include air coolers in most mosques due to the hot March weather. Mosques are also decorated with lights and tents for shade. Markets were crowded with people buying dates for the holy month, with over 10 tonnes arriving from foreign countries like the Middle East.

    Traders near Charminar have stocked up merchandise for setting up stalls along the stretch between Pathergatti and Shahalibanda, transforming it into a lively Night Bazaar during Ramzan.
