It is a very enchanting experience to walk through the doors of these places. every thing is prim and proper. neat and clean. Was expecting much more to be on show though.

situated at the heart of the city. one could spend hours by just enjoying its heritage and history. Entry ticket is very reasonable

The palace museum looks ordinary from the unkempt parking lot. However, once one steps inside the huge gate, one gets a peek into the opulent decadent lifestyle of the Nizams. The collection of gorgeous chandeliers in the room where the Nizams received important guests is stunning. The palace grounds had seen better days though. The carriage and car collection displayed in the back of the palace grounds was great!

This was the official residence of the Nizam of Hyderabad. In the centre of the old town, it is large and has a dry fine ballroom, as well as exhibitions of the artifacts of the palace, armor and even a vintage car collection. By the standards of Indian monuments it is well maintained, though it seemed odd not to have any kind of guidebook available. You will need a minimum of an hour to see the place, and couple spend twice that if you linger. There are also some attractive gardens.
