This palace in spite of being so close to the Charminar is often given a miss by tourists due to lack of knowledge about it. The palace has a grand look and the architecture is worth a visit. The collections may not be as grand as the Salarjung museum but they are no less either especially the crockery section. This... More

This is a must visit place; the beauty can only be seen and felt. The Vintage cars and manicured lawns are a sight to see. I braved the heat to include this in my itinerary and i am very glad i did. The museum boasts of a vast and rich cultural heritage of the Nizams which give us an insight... More

I would say, for a tourist spot, this place is not well maintained. Overall environment of the palace was poor.the security guards were not friendly

If you expect an opulence and grandeur , your wish is fulfilled. It is a beautiful palace and you feel as if you stepped in nawabi era. A room where u dress like nawab n begum and click a pic for souvenier , is a great touch.

It is a palace of the Nawabs of the Hyderabad state. A true delight and an architectural jewel of the history of Hyderabad and the Nawabs. The museum collection has photographs that have been framed with great care, clothes, cutlery and chinaware, furniture, clothes, weapons and the most well-maintained vintage cars you would ever see. Don't miss out on the... More

A nice educating experience. Try to get a royal photograph taken. They dress you up in royal clothes and take a picture. Its near the exit. It... More

Beautiful grounds and very well maintained items, interiors, photos etc of the Zizams. A must see for tourists or new comers to Hyderabad. Incredible collection of copies of 400-500year old Qorans. It is great the first time you go, however once you have seen it once you don't want to go again. Send visitors without you!
