Its was an amazing experience to see how Nizams lived during that time. I liked every part of the Palace. See the collections of swords and the Kuran room. The chandeliers inside the palace hall were so beautiful. Crockery collections in one of the hall upstairs will give you an idea as to what kind of lifestyle they used to... More

A unique collection from the history and a different kind of architecture. Atleast a one time watch place.

Very well maintained palace, ornately designed with a good collection of artifacts from palace life of the Nizams. Requires a few hours to tour the entire property. Wonderful trip down history. The grounds also host events. Saw wedding preparations taking place on the grounds while we were there. There's a suvenior shop in the premises as well. Indeed a must... More

Great place to stroll around the palace rooms and grounds, oh so quite, yet outside the walls is the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoyable visit but useful to have a local guide.

Quite unknown to many... but a very impressive place to visit to know its history... it was considered as palace to accommodate guests. The glass setup in own of the rooms is beautiful... the vintage cars are lovely.... best of all the snap you get to take in the nawabi attire... is memorable.

This perhaps is one of the best preserved heritage site in Hyderabad. Probably it is a private property. Yes it is not managed by ASI and thus is in a very good condition. The entry tickets are a bit higher ( Rs 50 ) as compared to ASI managed sites but its worth it. Not a high price to first... More

Being a Hyderabadi, never cared to visit this place. But after visiting it, found out what I was missing. Very neatly maintained palace grounds. Visitors regulated properly. Some good antique arms and cars that the Nawabs used in those times. Very informative.

While visiting Hyderabad we went to the palace. We were quite impressed by the magnificence of the buildings and grounds. It gives a glimpse of what opulence the Royals lived in. We were amazed by the enormity of the area within a very crowded old area of town. It was quite worth a visit and a real gem.
