Palace gives us an interesting glimpse of the Nizam's yesteryear. A walk past the collections of various articles, clothes and jewelry was informative. I personally love the collection of cars/ cycles in the palace. Yellow Rolls Royce was enviable thing ! We did take around 2 hours to move around, so plan your visit accordingly. Not many places where you... More

The palace is simply breathtaking along with The 'Beautiful' yellow shining Rolls Royce displayed in the glass box and some very rare vintage car and bike collection. The palace gives us a clear and interesting glimpse of the Nizam's yesteryears. Can't leave Hyderabad without a look at this magnificient by gone era.

Art and history of the Nizams of Hyderabad. The palace is maintained as a museum. You can also see the famous collection of old cars of Nizams of Hyderabad and some rare motor cycles as well. The palace itself is an architectural marvel. The tour requires considerable amount of walking and there are no proper resting places.

This palace gives an insightful glimpse into the life of the Nizams. Takes about 3 hours to explore the entire exhibition. Must do the keepsake photograph,where one gets to don royal clothes and jewellery!
