Panjagutta is a commercial and residential area in western Hyderabad, India.[1][2] The area contains IT hubs, shopping malls and jewellery shops. It has become a major transit point for traffic to and from the Hyderabad districts of Ameerpet, Banjara hills, Somajiguda and Khairtabad. Twin flyovers across the road junction are helping ease the previously heavy traffic flow.[3]

The name Panjagutta means hand-mountain in Telugu, after a nearby peak that is reputedly topped by a largely self supporting boulder marked by the hand-print of Imam Ali.
