Unfortunately, the Telangana tourism is also not promoting this palace much for unknown reason. It has countless attractions within… like large courtyards, green lush gardens, beautiful water fountains, majestic council... More

The building and campus needs better maintenance. Some parts of the building is under renovation and repair. But a good place to see know the history of the city and the royal family. The Car Museum is good.

The last block is off limits to the visitors. and at the end of the building is his vintage cars on display. That was... More

The palace have large number of old car, which kings used to use at their time, which I liked the most. Second thing which I liked there is the rooms in the palace which are so beautifully crafted that you will fall in love with them. Really amazing palace.

Just behind the hustle bustle of Lad bazaar of Charminar, stands this magnificent palace of the Nizam,remarkably well preserved by the Trust looking after it.Best to visit for a chowki dinner or gahzal show in the evening if invited. Otherwise, open to public till 5pm. Do not miss the textile exhibition show casing the regal attire of the past.
