The word \'Deccan\' refers to the plateau of land around Hyderabad that was the kingdom of the Nizams in the British era. Just as India was referred to as the jewel of the British empire in the entire world, the erstwhile state of Hyderabad was the biggest and richest state in the British India.Specifically the word Deccan was popularised by attaching it to the railway station name of Hyderabad as Hyderabad Deccan to distinguish it from the town of the same name located in the province of Sindh in today\'s Pakistan. The name of the rly stn used to be exhibited as Hyderabad Deccan till about 1975.
