Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

(650+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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. Make Taj Falaknuma Palace a part of your Hyderabad vacation plans using our Hyderabad vacation builder.

  • Yep this was spectacular. Everything from the initial reception to the tour of the palace was well executed, and the rooms themselves were beautifully decorated. Stay here only one night and for the price it was worth it. Getting sprinkled with rose petals while you walk up the stairs for the first time reminded me of the scene in Gladiator...an experience for sure.
  • Awesome and just everything is great here. Well maintained with delicious food and served like royal ..
  • Too expensive and not worth the money. The staff shows forced hospitality. The food is barely average (tried brushetta, pizza and panini) and the serving size is small.
  • Heavenly. Extravagant. Opulent. Relive the era bygone. An eclectic amalgam of Victorian and Italian architecture, Falaknuma Palace - 'mirror of the sky', is situated 2000 metres above sea level overlooking the cities of Old Hyderabad, Secunderabad and Cyberabad. Replete with frescoes, copper engraved and embossed wall panels, sheesham, cedar, oak and mahogany carved ceilings, Gothic columns and archways, the edifice is a splendour to behold. One would be hard-pressed to choose photoscenic points and vistas.
  • Basically Taj Falaknuma is know as Falaknuma Palace which was abonded and was running like musium but some years back it's has been acquired by Taj Hotel and now using it as Taj Falaknuma 5 Star hotel with their tremendous service and it's a must visit place in Hyderabad where you can Still find ancient things in Palace which was used by Kings in their periods
