Must visit

It's a must visit in the hyderabad trip. The palace is too good to see and kids have enough place to play. There is a car museum... Quran museum and all.

We attended on a hot busy Sunday and found the Palace to be quiet and cool. A large complex with gift shop and cafeteria (basic) with some spectacular rooms and buildings. Informative displays with the armoury being well set up in particular. The card and carriages are worth a look as are the ancient artefacts throughout.

This is a must-see visit when in Hyderabad. The Palace is actually several buildings on very large grounds so expect a lot of walking. There is a lot of pictures and artifacts of the Nizam's, even several vehicles and motorcycles from their collection. These are found at the very back so you need to really look for them in the...

This place is a must visit. The palace structure is turned into a museum and has few rare exhibits on display. The place looks grand and takes you to a different nizam era. The exhibits on display are varied: weapons, letters of nizam, currency, rare photos, clothing, decor and few rare cars. I love visiting this place and I'm sure... More

The elegant nature and royal atire makes the palace a best place to visit in Hyderabad. Quite contrary to the outside market's high pitch din, the area is very quite spread over lush green fields and trees. The majestic palces and durbar halls are just the best examples of the great works of the masons and labours who built the... More

The only good historical location in Hyderabad. This place beams the life of the royal Nizams of Hyderabad that lived here. The grandeur of the structure is magnificent.

One of the coolest place to visit when traveling to Hyderabad.The good thing is to see how well it is being maintained, Renovated now. But patronage is missing. Lot of programs if organized fine. Roads leading to the palace to be looked.Best place to learn about the history of Hyderabad..
