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. The place is of course not free for visitors. You have to Chowmahalla Tickets to enter the place. Tickets for Chowmahalla can be availed directly from the premises.

Chowmahalla Palace, Hyderabad Reviews
A very good historic palace in Hyderabad. Good environment to spend time. Well clean place and we will get lots of joy from their. Good place to take photos but photography is restricted some place in this palace . Parking area is not available that is a problem. We can see lots of historic things from their
If you wanna get a royal feel about how the kings and ministers used to maintain their everyday life you must visit the palace. Also all their weapons, maps, war plans, costumes, how was the currencies and lot more to see and understand. Really liked it. Awesome.
This is nice place to visit in Hyderabad.. it's 10 min walk from Charminar.. not crowded and have big space.. entry fees is Rs 50 but it worth.. it has museum and collection of things from ancient times.. it also have garden, fountain.. good place to click picture.
The current renovation makes the main building facade difficult to appreciate, but the interior, although in need of a thorough cleaning, is not disrupted. The exterior grounds (gardens and walkways) are fairly well kept. The palace is very unique in terms of design & embellishment and the walk around the full place takes around 2 hours if you take a casual tourist level of interest and walk through everything. Not many labels/placards and no random guides at this place harassing you for a tour. Some collections included weapons, antique cars, period clothing and ceramics. Again, everything was dusty and needed a good cleaning to really appreciate and the lack of AC inside the collections is concerning for their longevity. Entry is 200 rupees for foreigners and 50 rupees for residents. 50 rupee camera or cell phone fee. (they actually did check!)
I was totally amazed by the place. If you missed this place while visiting Hyderabad then you actually missed the chance to experience the amazing luxurious lifestyle of Nizams. Well maintained by the authorities. Totally Amazing.
