A Royal Courtyard

Perched 2,000 feet above the city of Hyderabad is Taj Falaknuma Palace, a jewel among the clouds. Built in 1894, it is the former palace of the Nizam, rumored to be the richest man in the world at one time. No photographs allowed inside, but the architecture and woodwork is astounding.

Chowmahalla Palace Hyderabad

Chowmahalla Palace is the palace of the Nizams of Hyderabad State in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It was the seat of the Asaf Jahi dynasty and was the official residence of the Nizams of Hyderabad while they ruled their state.

It was Salabat Jung, the fourth Nizam of Hyderabad, who commissioned the construction of the Chowmahalla Palace way back in 1750. After more than 100 years, the construction was finally completed between 1857 and 1869 during the rule of Afzal ad-Dawlah, the fifth Nizam of Hyderabad.
