“Forlorn and Forgotten”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Needs refurbishment especially as it used to be the Nawabi residence. The old portraits are interesting but there's nothing much to see.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I was unaware of this place until I learnt of it from a friend. The palace interior is exotic and well maintained. The exterior can be improved. The intricate ceilings and the exhibits are outstanding. Definitely worth a visit.

“A Jewel of Time...”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

What can one say, this property opened its gates for general public in year 2005 and is still owned by the Hyderabad Nizam Family.

The property is in a immaculate shape and a worthy site. It also houses a small vintage car/bike collection belonging to the Nizam Family including a beautifully preserved Rolls Royce and a lot of other cars and bikes.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Let's you peek into the lifestyle of the Nizams of Hyderabad. A good piece of history and great architecture. So glad that time and energy were spent to conserve this palace.

“just a stone'sthrow from charminar”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

not much peopleknow that there is just amazing vast palace in heart of hyderabad just half km from famous charminar. i went there with some suspicion that is it worth going there?? but i was amazed once i entered the main gate. fountains welcome u n then u see 4 palaces one after another. artefatcs and other articles stored in it are worth seeing. the place reminds of the old heritage of the nizam times. dont forget to have a look on the collection of the vintage cars especialy the 1912 rolls royce golden yellow car.
