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.

Great historical place to visit in Hyderabad. located in the heart of the old city with very heavy traffic, but very peaceful on the inside. would have been nice if there were guides to explain on what is what. still it was a great experience to see such a magnificent facility still maintained fairly well .. learn the history of the place before you visit, to enjoy it even more
Beautiful palace with many pieces of artwork and historical artifacts. There are lots of interesting photographs as well that give some candidity to the people that lived there. At the back is a pretty cool car collection. Restoration work was ongoing while I was there. I imagine it will be grander looking as that progresses.
It is beautiful museum earlier it was fort. Vintage cars on display Vintage crockery Furniture used by royal family. Nicely crafted roofs walls and maintain garden Secured it by manned guards Tickets for Indian adult is 60/- only. Visit the fort and enjoy the royal touch of the lives of Nizam of Hyderabad. Worth a visit to see it
Located in old Hyderabad it's one of the main attractions for tourists visiting Hyderabad.It was the official palace of Nizam of Hyderabad during their rule. Chowmahalla means four palaces. The palace was renovated and opened for the public in 2005. The palace is converted into a museum depicting different rulers , the weapons used at that time, their utensils, ornaments etc. There is a lawn in front of the palace with fountains. It's definitely worthwhile to visit the palace ! !
It will take half day to explore the palace. Mini canteen is available to have snacks. Full fledged food not available. Only stairs are available, no lift or escalator. Photography is available, where you can get yourself photographed in royal attire. Vintage cars is a good attraction.
