World's longest wardrobe
Aug 2021
Badly maintained by the trust but a must visit museum in Hyderabad. Photography is allowed on payment of Rs.150. Do not hire any touts hanging around as guide because they know little about the exhibits and spin a tall yarn. Exhibits are well described. A highlight of the museum is the Nizam's wardrobe which is supposed to be one of the biggest in the world!

Historical Palace
Jun 2019 • Solo
It is also known as Masarrat Mahal palace. Haveli means Mansion. Purani Haveli is "U" in shape, with two oblong wings running parallel to each other and the residential palace located perpendicularly in the middle. A unique feature of this palace is the world's longest wardrobe, built in two levels with a hand-cranked wooden elevator .
A good museum also set in palace.

You would find the best of Nizam's life style through museum here
Apr 2019 • Family
It is one of the best museums in Hyderbad that I have visited. The building looks so old. But once you enter inside the muesum you will definetely be surprised to see the great collection of Nizaz king and his artifcats.

Here are some of the best things that must see:

1. Nizam's biggest wardrobe in the size of a big hall. Hopefully these clothes are sufficient for the entire year.

2. Things used for opening ceremony of Nizam Sagar are completely made up of Gold.

3. Even in the days where electricity was not available king used to have elivator madeup of wood and pulled with man power.

4. There are many toys and building models and forts completely made up of Gold.

You will be amazed to see all these..

Only one thing that I wish Govt changes the building is well maintained so that more number of visitors visit this museum and learn about the glory of Nizam days.

Built in the European style

Purani Haveli is situated at the South east of Afzal Gunj Bridge near Dewandevdi.
In 16th century, it was used as the residential quarter of Mir Momen, the Peshwa of Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah. However, later in 18th century, it was acquired and then renovated by Nizam III. It was then passed on to his son Sikandar Jah, who, although moved to the Khilaurat complex, which gave it the name of Purani Haveli.
Haveli presents a beautiful amalgamation of traditional Indian courtyards and 18th century European facades. It has beautifully designed interiors, antique furniture, vast courtyards and rooms with colourful tiled walls and mosaic floors. There is also a Nizam’s museum with extensive collection, a library and Mukarram Jah Technical Institute inside the U shaped complex where the haveli is located.

Ok to visit, maintenance a serious concern
Oct 2017 • Solo
Purani Haveli is one of the old residences of the Nizam of Hyderabad and unlike the Chowmahalla and Falaknuma palaces is not exactly in the best of shape. The complex has a huge courtyard, which functions as a playground and contains a school and the Nizam's Museum, which is privately run by the Nizam's descendants.

Entry to the complex is only allowed if one is visiting the museum, which has a separate entry charge. The buildings are not well-maintained and look rather worn out. One can spend around 1 hour here.

Remnant Of Hyderabad's Heritage, Lesser Known Yet Astounding
Jan 2018 • Friends
Purani Haveli Is Surely A Hidden Jewel. Constructed in U - Shape, It Was The Former Residence Of The Asaf Jahis. It Currently Houses Artifacts And Things Of The Asafjahs, And Also The Models Of The Structures Of Nizams, Completely Made Up Of Silver. The Palace Also Houses The Remnants Of The Mir Osman Ali Khan's Silver Jubilee Celebration, And Also Houses The Throne, And Various Other Items, Such As Tiffin Boxes, Curtains, Hookahs, Swords Etc.

Perhaps The Most Interesting Part Is The Wardrobe Of The Nizam, One Of The Largest In The World. It Has Two Levels, And Is Huge, And Also Houses Some Of The Asaf Jah's Dresses. The Architectural Style Of The Haveli And Its Artifacts Can Also Be Stated As The Relation Between The British And Nizams. It Is A Must Vist Place For History Buffs And Architecture Lovers, Though It Does Not Have The Pomp Of Chowmohalla And Falaknuma, It Is Good To Visit
