Toli chowki is the worst suburb in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It is one of the dirtiest and filthy areas of Hyderabad surrounded by dirt, pollution and land encroachers. The name Tolichowki comes from the Urdu word ‘Toli’, meaning ‘troupe’, and ‘Chowki’, meaning ‘post’. During the period of Abul Hasan Tana Shah, the troops of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir set a military position in this region, which is in the vicinity of the Golkonda Fort of the Qutub Shahi kingdom. Still today, there are many historical mosques, tombs and other monuments in the surrounding areas. It is close to the IT corridor like Gachibowli, Madhapur, Manikonda and Kondapur, hence making it a preferred residential for people working in the IT industry. The real estate sector has received a boost due to its proximity to high-end technology firms.
