Once regarded as the center of Hyderabad, the magnificent Chowmahalla Palace was the seat of the Asaf Jahi dynasty where the Nizams entertained their official guests and royal visitors. Built over 200 years ago, Chowmahalla Palace is renowned for its unique style and elegance.A synthesis of many architectural styles and influences, the Palace Complex has been meticulously restored.

The carvings on the walls and ceilings are mind-blowing. Our problem with this place was we went in summers. The heat is scorching and walks from one mahal to another under the scorching sun drained out our energies. That being said, this can be very pleasant in winter since there are beautifully manicured lawns (but few trees to provide shade... More

Historic Place with all the data on the History of Rulers, the vehicles used and the weapons used by the Nizams are part of the Exhibit in Chowmahalla Palace. Beware that the guards are cautious of the photographs taken while sight seeing the palace. Rolls Royce Vehicle owned by the Nizam Rulers is one of the beauty. Internal Architecture is... More

It is a very nice place for history lovers. The vintage car collection is nice. Not much parking space inside and parking outside is a mess.

The palace has eye catching architecture! It has a watch from the 1800's on one of the gates which functions accurately! The palace has a beautiful throne and chandeliers. The palace also displays pictures of all the Nizams too!

Well from the outside you will not know you are near a palace or about to enter one. Entry is chargeable but is nominal. You pay to take your camera in. Its a big place and if you are going with kids its advisable to carry a stroller, none is available their on rent. The lawns and green around the... More
