According to the Hijri calendar, 1/1/1000, the first Muharrum of the year 1000 is when Charminar was first opened to the public. According to the same calendar, the historic monument celebrated its 444th anniversary on Sunday July 31.

Amidst the ambiguity surrounding the date of the laying of the first stone and the opening of the monument to public visitation, two dates are taken into account – July 31, according to the Hijri calendar, and October 9, 1591 according to the Georgian calendar.
