Create an itinerary including Taj Falaknuma Palace
Relive the grandeur of days gone by during a visit to Taj Falaknuma Palace, an ornate old building that now acts as a luxury hotel. Completed in 1893 according to a design by an English architect, the building has several interesting external features, including the fact that the whole thing is meant to look like a scorpion when seen from above, with two wings acting as the stingers. Take a tour of the erstwhile palace to see the Italian and Tudor influenced interiors, then treat yourself to a spot of high tea--a meal much enjoyed by the upper classes during the colonial era. PutTaj Falaknuma Palace into our Hyderabad online holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great place, it's amazing to hear from the guide about the intricate details about the palace. The view is spectacular and no wonder why anyone who has the money won't buy the palace on their very first visit. Just go there for the view. Food is good, but could be better. The expectations are already touching the sky by the time you reach your dinner table, so the food has to take you higher.
  • Had a team dinner at Taj Falaknuma. Enjoyed walking around the historic monument. The palace is kept in top notch condition. Palace Tour is available at 6pm and 9pm. Personal tour is 10K. Tour guide would stop at each room open to the public and share the history behind it. Be sure to arrive early to walk around the property and enjoy the great views of the property and of the city. Food was tasty and not spicy at all. Loved the lamb kebab. All starters were really good. Great collection of wine. Staff is very friendly and courteous. Enjoyed the Sufi qawwali arrangement.
  • A must go place if you are in Hyderabad! The place has beautiful views of Hyderabad. The palace is converted into the hotel but you can get a tour of historical library, dining area and other important areas! The food is delicious, authentic and hospitality of the staff makes it an unforgettable experience!
  • Truly an outstanding experience. Every minute of our stay has been fabulous. So much attention is given to finer details, fabulous food, fabulous service, so much warmth in the place. Every single staff we have come across is an epitome of service and humility.
  • Very pleasant memorable experience , best place to visit on special occasions like birthday and marriage day. Food is below average, but rest of the things are excellent. Food quality is good but taste is very bland and doesnt taste good for south people.
