  • So surprisingly this is one of the best places I've visited in my stay at Hyderabad. Yes it's not that well known but trust me, this is located amidst the old side of Hyderabad and you wouldn't easily spot this place, but the moment you enter this place its a whole different story altogether. You can feel the history of Hyderabad and how the Nizams lifestyle used to be and so much to learn. It was a brilliant experience.
  • It is an amazing place. Although the palace is a little smaller than a usual palace, it is still quite stunning. Unfortunately a few of the palaces inside Chowmahala was under renovation and so could not visit them from inside. A great destination none the less.
  • An amazing destination to have a glimpse of true Royal life. You can plan for a couple of hours trip or spend a whole day with your family. No food court; washrooms are okay. Eye-popping vintage cars.
  • I Came to know what Royalty is.. Nice place excellent Palace with a wonderful architecture. So nicely designed. Highlights: Collection of Cars and Buggies. Armour Section. Quran Gallery ans so on..
  • Great place to spend a morning. Lots of photos to bring to life the era of Nizams of Hyderabad. You can also see well restored vintage and classic cars from the Nizam's stable. Lots of walking to do so be prepared! The visit is worth the time and effort. Don't miss the Buick super eight.
