Just inside the old part of Hyderabad there it is this wonderful palace which used to be the house for the Nizams, the former kings of the city. You can spend a relax time walking in the gardens,take some nice pictures with the famous old and accurate (so they say) tower clock only to then admire the amazing marble trone.... 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 ....

It is a massive palace, well built, elegant, neatly maintained, clean and plenty of greenery present. It gives an idea of how the Nizams live during their Dynasty. Several old and beautiful cars are there, and people should have a look of this antiques.

Jonty did a fantastic job detailing the history of the royal family and tying it in with et artifacts and buildings on the palace. The motor cars were a treat to see.

The tour should last upto 3 hours. They do not have any guides/escorts to take you around but have well written explanations to help tourists understand better. The main... More

This grand palace really takes you back a century or two and showcases the lifestyles of the rich and the famous. Everything screams of grandiose..the chandeliers, the ceiling and the fancy car collection. At the end of the tour there is a tiny photo studio that dresses you up in the Nawab's dress (in less than a minute) and takes... More
