Musheerabad is a commercial center in Hyderabad, India. Musheerabad comes under central zone and ninth circle of Hyderabad, and falls under the Secunderabad revenue division.


The historic old portion of Musheerabad Masjid was constructed during the Qutb Shahi era.[1] Later the mosque and surrounding area were given as a jagir to Nawab Aratu Jah, Mushir-ul-Mulk (then Prime Minister of Hyderabad) and named in his honour.[2]

The area housed the Musheerabad Jail until 2003 after which it was demolished and a new hospital and the new premises of Gandhi Medical College were constructed in the same area.[3][4] Most of the recent development of Musheerabad has occurred following the construction of the Gandhi Medical College and the adjoining Gandhi Hospital, one of the largest public hospitals in Telangana. Several postgraduate medical entrance coaching centres, restaurants and apartments have sprung up in the area, owing to the large number of medical students residing in Musheerabad. The presence of the hospital has also led to several diagnostic labs and pharmacies opening their branches in Musheerabad. A separate station for Gandhi Medical College has also been planned on the Hyderabad Metro rail network.


Musheerabad (Assembly constituency) is one of the electoral constituencies in the Telangana Legislative Assembly.[5] Member of legislative Assembly (MLA) since 2018 is Muta Gopal (TRS).


The area is commercial in nature with the presence mainly of traders of silk sarees and tanneries.[6][7]

Musheerabad is a buzz place on Sundays, with roadside old book vendors.[8]
