Taj Falaknuma is the Nizams palace converted to a hotel. Needless to say, its a magnificent hotel with much of its history and grandeur maintained very well. The hotel is on a hill giving a beautiful view of the city and leading to cool breeze flowing for most times of the day. There is a palace tour organized everyday at... More

I find it strange that this is designated a tourist site - because this is no longer the case. Technically it is but as its owned by the Taj Hotel Group I was told that I could not visit the palace or the grounds unless I was a resident or unless I had booked a dinner reservation at one of...

Grounds The grounds are beautiful. It’s smaller than I initially thought (perhaps not all of it was open to public?). During the entire stay there is a feeling of privilege, thinking about the palace’s history and picturing the lives that the people led here. We arrived at around 4am but there was still a horse drawn carriage waiting for us.... More

As the car snakes up the private mountain road, you start leaving the city’s fume and dust-laden air. You pull up at the first check point – a couple of guards walk up to your car window. One of them has a visitors log in his hands. “Adab,” says the first one, bowing slightly while lifting his open palm to... More

I was going to head for Bangalore but was advised to stay one night at the palace over the weekend and I'm so glad I did!
