Every minaret consists of 149 steps which takes us to the top of the minar and a mosque is located at the western end of the open roof. The remaining section of the roof served as a royal court during the Qutb Shahi times.

8. Hindu-Muslims, temple and mosque conflict !
There is a theory that hindu people strongly believe that Charminar was built on Bhagyalakshmi temple. But the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) which currently manages the Charminar has declared the temple structure as an unauthorised construction. Hyderabad High Court has stopped any further expansion of the temple. While the origin of the temple is currently disputed, the current structure that houses the idol was erected in the 1960s.
