Falaknuma Palace - Review
Built in the late 19th century by the Nawab Vikar-ul-Umra, the Taj Falaknuma Palace holds a number of royal memories of Hyderabad. The luxe palace once belonged to the Paigah family and also to the Nizam of Hyderabad. Today the stunning palace made completely from Italian Marble and gorgeous stained-glass windows, is a rare historic treat for architecture lovers and to those who are smitten by the royal life in India.
The palace has 60 rooms and 22 halls and a library room that has a one-of-a-kind carved roof made from walnut wood (replicating the one at Windsor Castle). The ballroom is a chapter straight out of a period movie with an unique, manually operated organ. The beautiful billiards table kept here is a twin of the one placed at Buckingham Palace while the frescoes and gilded decorations seen through out the palace, are as close to plush royal design as you can ever get!
The spotlight however, falls on the personal collection of the Nizam that includes rare paintings, beautiful statues, unique furniture pieces, historic manuscripts and books and a fine collection of artefacts made from Jade. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.

Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad Reviews
One of the best Taj properties I have visited. The sheer charm and feel of royalty makes this place stand out. Not to forget the famous Taj hospitality. So was there for my birthday lunch and they took care of every request. The food, the tour, the ambience everything lived up to the name. Finally they got me a surprise cake and bouquet of roses...just made it so special!
One of the excellent palaces in the city of Hyderabad, Taj Falaknuma makes the guests stay pleasurable with its authentic service and matchless hospitality. It has 60 rooms which are rendered with tea/coffee maker, electronic safe, mini bar, intercom and satellite TV. The hotel also features conference hall, swimming pool, health club, spa and library.
