    Gorgeous complex, with well maintained buildings and gardens. Very nicely curated to show photos of the last three nizams and their families. Really enjoyed the artifacts and old car collection! Well worth the visit.

    One of the more beautiful places worth visiting in Hyderabad. Beautiful interiors. Remember that you need to pay an extra 50 bucks to be able to take photographs of the interiors.

    Beautiful place that was well maintained. A bit of a walk to cover it all, but well worth it. Many different things to see and the staff was kind and helpful. My son (4yrs) loved it, especially seeing the collection of cars. They also have a fun picture thing as you come in. They dress you up and take your picture in front a a backdrop. It was only like 100inr for a photo. Well worth it. Was quite fun and takes no time at all, but is a fun memory of the trip.
