Its just in the corner of Charminar. Do visit this place as its worth a visit as its an encyclopedia of the Nizams lifestyle and great information of the various places to visit.

Only thing to see at the palace is a 60 year old rolls royce. Thats it. They have scrounged for a few relics and tried to make it a museum. Not well maintained. Entry ticket is costly (40rs for indians). You ll need only an hour to see it thouroughly. Do eat the kaddu ki kheer, double ka meetha and... More

The place is nicely preserved and well maintained. I liked the pond and some of the interior halls. In total, great for history buff, but nothing exciting.

It is just like a dream place one can think off in the old city of Hyderabad near to Charminar. A true epitome of our Nawab's delight and best in the field of arts and architecture. All category shown significant distinction from each other. Special attraction is the "Raj Darbaar" beautifully decorated and ornamented place, the weapons at the ancient... More

While walking around the old city, take some time out to visit this palace. It is worth your time and money as it gives you good information about the nizams. I would say visit this first so that you can understand the other sites you visit in Hyderabad.

Situated closely to charminar, but away from the crowdness of laad bazaar!!!! it's walk able distance only from charminar. Worth a visit. This palace has 2 courtyards, fountains, gardens & some prestigious collection of vintage cars..There is a large chandeliers, which is marvellous. Could see some fine art works, know about some history of nizam.. Palace is nicely maintained!!!!
