  • It's a beautiful grounds to explore, both from a historical point of view but also from a serenity point of view. It's super interesting to wander around the buildings and view the collection of rare items, and the garage with the old cars is fun to see. There's a vendor who dresses you up like a Nizam and takes portraits too. I recommend visiting and taking your time wandering the grounds.
  • A really splendid palace with beatiful architecture and a royal grandeur to everything there is. They have an amazing single long corridor in the beginning which looks magnificent but the most breath taking part I enjoyed was the amazing collection of Vintage Cars they have in their Collection which includes an old model of Rolls Royce as a start among others. They even have old bikes and jeeps too, though they were not in the best shapes
  • It is wonderful palace in architecture. It is very near to char Minar. Here lot of vintage cars are showcased. Lot of weapons are also showcased. Beautiful decoration in the terrace are painted. Wow
  • You really feel the royalty in this place. Very well preserved artefacts, arms & ammunition, and various other items are present. If you want to explore this place completely come with at least 2-3 hours of spare time. The antique car museum in the palace is also worth watching.
  • Nice place. 10 minutes walk from char minor. Beautiful architecture.. all 4 mahals are beautiful & the vantage car collection is breath taking. Entry fee is 20rs. Per person and 50 rs charge applicable for camera.. You can also get clicked in the traditional attire in studio available inside the palace.
