Char Kaman is a historical structure in Hyderabad, India.[1] It is located near Charminar.[2] After the completion of Charminar, at about 75m feet to its north, four lofty arches known as Charkaman were built in 1592. The Char Kaman is one among the four such structures which are part of the Charminar. The other three are Machli Kaman, Kali Kaman and Sher-e-Batil-Ki-Kaman.[3] Charkaman is notified as a heritage structure by INTACH[4]
