Uppuguda is one of the oldest suburbs of old city of Hyderabad. Uppuguda (also known as Huppuguda, which is the name of its Railway Station) is located 3.5 km from the Charminar monument, and 2.5 km from Defence Research Development Laboratories (DRDL). Uppuguda, previously considered a village, now falls under the jurisdiction of Bandlaguda Mandal. Uppuguda is surrounded by Ex-servicemen colony, Arundathi Nagar Colony, Rajiv Gandhi Colony, Shivaji Nagar, Tanaji Nagar, Chatrimet, Lalitha Bagh, Bhaiyya Lal Nagar, Ambika Nagar, Chatrinaka, Tovvala Bavi, Reddy Basthi, Kandikal Gate, Rakshapuram Colony, Shankarbagh, Saibaba Nagar, Mukkera Basthi, Harijan Basthi, DRDL, Kanchanbagh, Rakshapuram Colony,Riyasath Nagar, Laldarwaza and Gowlipura.

Nearby Cinema Theatres to Uppuguda are Yadagiri 70mm located in Santoshnagar and Sudha 70mm near Chandulal Bela of Shah-Ali Banda.

One example is Uppuguda Station Road.
