It is nice place to have plenty of good quality snaps of you and you famlly. Biggest attraction is Deewane-Aam decorated with Human size large 10 to 12 chandeliers and a classic beauty - Rolls Roys of 1940s with beautiful sunny yellow color

We visited the place as part of a Heritage walk from Charminar - its very well maintained and beautiful. The contents - vintage car and historical outfits which have been restored are definitely worth seeing.

Spread over 15 acres, this sprawling palace reminds us of the richness of the nizam. You have to go to these places with a certified guide who charges 300 - 350 Indian rupees. It is well worth it. One has to immerse in the aura of the darbar hall that has the nizam's marble throne. There are so many photographs... More

A newly built palace...it gives a feeling how wealthy the nizams were and how lavish their life was....nothing much to see inside ...vintage cars are there and even a rolls Royce....entry fee expensive and not worth if you are interested in something historical ....
