If you ever wondered how would it be to live like the Nizam's, you must visit this place. It's quite well maintained and offers great insights to their lifestyle. The collection of antique cars is not to be missed.

The first thing to see when you visit the Chowmahalla Palace is a sign stating that SLR cameras are not allowed, hence I only have one photo from outside to share. Why SLR cameras are not allowed is beyond me when other cameras are allowed....More

Hyderabad’s most iconic architectural delight,
Charminar is beyond just a popular
monument. It’s the
nucleus of the busiest and most vibrant lanes of the
Old City
studded with shops selling bangles and
pearls. It can be too crowded and overwhelming, but to
every tourist’s delight, the gems and hidden treasures
