About Chowmahalla Palace

The Nizam of Hyderabad modelled his four palaces on a 45-acre plot with inspiration drawn from the Palace of The Shah of Iran. It was named Chowmahalla Palace. Over the years, as Hyderabad grew, the palace grounds shrank to 14 acres with two palaces still on the private property of the Nizam. The well-maintained manicured gardens, gurgling fountains, and the palaces at the Chowmahalla Palace Hyderabad have been converted into museums with the most impressive collection of royal artifacts. The most astounding of the displayed articles is easily the only running version of the 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost. The Nizam’s vintage car museum is easily a treasure on wheels. The Nizam of Hyderabad was a very cultured man with a keen eye and fine taste for expensive memorabilia which are now on exhibit at the Chowmahalla Palace Museum. At the very centre of the palace is the Khilwat Mahal which is awe-inspiring and beautiful to behold. Even the clock tower above the main gate is worthy of mention, having ticked its way into history with 250 years of precise time-keeping. Travel by city buses is excellent. You could hire auto-rickshaws and cabs to zip around in comfort. Plan to visit Hyderabad in winter starting in late September. Bookings for hotels near Chowmahalla Palace can be made online and the Falaknuma Palace area is one of the better places to stay near Chowmahalla Palace Hyderabad.

Pro Tip: On your visit to the city, you should also tour the Salarjung Museum, Golconda Fort, and the Charminar area to buy cultured pearls, amongst the many attractive offerings of Hyderabad.
