HYDERABAD: A picture of two streets is circulating on social media.

Users claim that there are two pictures of the same city recorded at different temperatures on the same day. The picture with no trees has recorded temperature ranging between 36°C and 50°C, while the temperature of the street surrounded with trees has recorded temperature ranging between 18°C and 26°C.


FACT CHECK:

The claim that these two pictures are of the same city with different temperatures on the same day is false.

We noticed that upon zooming in on the first photo, a store board that reads 'Magic Valley Auto Parts', can be seen. Through Google search, we found that Magic Valley Auto Parts is located in Twin Falls, Idohoa, United States. The same was also confirmed by another article that recognizes this location as Twin Falls, Idohoa.


Upon performing a reverse image search for picture two, we found the photo on a hotel website `House Octogon'. The street image is posted in the photo gallery section of the website under 'Hotel's Surrounding'. House Octogon is located on Eötvös Street in the Oktogon locality of the Hungarian capital, Budapest.
