  • It's an underrated place. We never knew it was this beautiful until we visited. It's not very famous in the crowd but it can amuse you with a great collection of articrafts, weapons, cars of their reign. Takes around an hour to see everything.
  • A great palace and a complete museum that is not much crowded as it has not been highlighted as much as other tourist attractions. It is closely located to charminar so both could be covered together.
  • Amazing palace to visit. I liked the costume section specially. If you are in Hyderabad, this is one of the many must see places. It's located nearby the Charminar, so to come here you have pass through the crazy busy old city area. But once you enter through the gate you'll be welcomed by a nice peaceful garden. The other thing I really liked about this place is that it's not really crowded.
  • Beautiful palace.. But nothing to do much here.. Walk around, take some photos.. Thats all.. Having 1hr time efficient.. Good parking nearby
  • Best tourist spot in Hyderabad for visiting and seeing the old memories.it is a very old palace constructed in 19th century.
