Hyderabad - Ramoji Film City

This is the World's largest Studio complex ( Guiness Book of World Records) and is Hyderabad's well kept secret. In case you want to see the behind the scenes of a Indian movie combined with a experience of Disneyland, Universal Studios this is the place. We enjoyed the whole day there last week. I would highly recommend the Royal Package which is $850 per person (about $20). This gives you a guide, includes lunch, water, tea, snacks and entry to most rides ( Excludes a few children;s rides)

Here is the Wikipedia page for the film city http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramoji_Film_City and a New York Times article http://travel.nytimes.com/2006/12/31/travel/31journeys.html
At the time Ramoji Film City was established in 1996 I would meet friends from the hotel industry who were involved in the project. I even met Kiran Rao the son of the founder of this group Ramoji Rao.
