Chowmahalla Palace - Review
A classic blend of Persian, Rajasthani, Indo-Saracen and European style of architecture is reflected in this dazzling palace made up of four distinguishable palaces incorporated together. The southern courtyard has one mahal with period rooms containing the Nizams’ over-the-top furniture; another mahal with an exhibit on life in the Zenana (women’s quarters) that includes bejewelled clothes, carpets and a bride palanquin; antique cars (one Nizam allegedly used a Rolls Royce as a garbage can); and curiosities like elephant seats.
In the northern courtyard is the Khilwat Mubarak , a magnificent durbar hall where Nizams held ceremonies under 19 enormous chandeliers of Belgian crystal. Today the hall houses exhibitions of photos, arms and clothing. Hung with curtains, the balcony over the main hall once served as seating for the women of the family, who attended all durbars in purdah.
Some other masterpieces in this multifaceted structure include The Clock Tower, The Council Hall, and The Roshan Bangla, which have their independent significance.
A beautiful palace incorporating all the elements of Rajasthani, Persian, Indo- Saracen and European architecture and bringing them to life in the form of this astonishing piece of marvel.

Chowmahalla Palace, Hyderabad Reviews
Great place I have seen in Hyderabad. I enjoyed the place in many way like architecture and the natural beauty. The artefact collections the palace is very reach and well maintained. Especially I liked the swords and old cutlass. The architecture of the palace is mind blowing. The collection of the vintage car and automobile are awesome and reach. It is clear showing how reach the sultans was.
It's a great place to visit in Hyderabad. I took my family here at the first place and it really worth the time we spend there. Vintage car section was love, palace's interior designs are fabulous, totally felt the Royal families posh lifestyle . Weapon section is also one of the classic collection I have ever seen before.
This is a place where you can know more about history of Hyderabad , you can find here 4 palaces ,with all the history of king and queen , monuments of what they have used from eating , sleeping to fighting ,entry ticket cost around 50 rs. Old cars are there which were used by the king at that era ,place is big it takes two to three hours of time .it's good for pictures also they charge ticket for that if someone wants to do photography there .The place is maintained well .If someone is interested in history then this place should be viewed
Such a nice experience to see a live palace , clothing, arms used etc... there r five places inside but the first one most beautiful.. two was closed for visit.....cars, bikes and baghhis used by them all r available to see.... usually we see such things in movies only... connecting road is narrow and kills time, it should be make jam free...
