About Chowmahalla Palace, Hyderabad
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.

Nice and peaceful place to spend sometime Max 2-3 hrs. Entry fee is reasonable. Great collection of vintage cars. Hard to spend the whole day . If want to spend the whole day , get some food from home.
Nice place, a lot of beautiful scenery. There are four palaces that you get to see. The museum is pretty good. There you get to see things ranging from cutlery to weapons used by the nawabs. There is also a showcase of antique vehicles.
Great historic place to visit. Very calm and well maintained. Beautiful museum with good collection of historic weapons, paintings and vintage cars.
Palace is beautiful and has a great collection of antique cars. The exhibits could be a bit better curated, positioned and lighted (e.g. cars are in a dark place where you can't really take any pictures). Definitely worth visiting.
Nice museum to visit. Can spend an afternoon there. Calm in the midst of the bustle in old city. Clean and well maintained. Good place to check the history of Hyderabad
