“The Grandeur of the Nizams”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

When you visit this landmark it is difficult to fathom that it is close to 300 years old. The best time to visit is at night (it is open with all the lights at night for special fortnights or celebratory weeks)

“Must visit”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I visited this place on 13th march 2013. Loved the place, the collection and the display is very good .It takes more than an hour to see the palace.After visiting this palace you get an idea of Nizam's life style. One must visit this place, when in Hyderabad.The palace is very near to Charminar and there is a chudi bazar very near to this place,also Known as laad bazar.You get special chudies there.A must buy.

“Went on a Saturday and going through the old town was awesome”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Go to the Palace Restaurant close to the Chowmahalla - the best Biriani ever...The Palace itself was in what I would call a rustic state of repair and had the most amazing pictures of the History of the Royal Family and how they'd evolved over the centuries. The ceilings we superb and for a Saturday it was uncrowded and pleasant. Not sure it would be quite as good in the heat of summer or during the monsoon, but in Feb/March it was excellent. Cheap to get in, but i recommend you get a "driver" from the Hotel, not a taxi.
