Very well maintained. Sadly again rather irritated with the large difference in entrance fees for foreigners. The place is well kept and the different exhibition of the history of the royal family was impressive. The compound is well kept. Worth a visit.

History and Granduer,, a stones throw from the Charminar! The vintage car collection is a real highlight as are the cutlery and weapons displayed. Great place to spend about 4 hours. In the heart of the old city of Hyderabad but an oasis of calmness and tranquility.

Lovely place to spend a couple of hours. Lovely gardens and architecture. The interior of the chowmahalla palace, where the 8th Nizam was crowned, is stunning. There is also an art gallery there and a marvellous collection of crockery. The smaller palace, behind contains the opulent living accommodations and is preserved in a time warp from early last century. Adjacent... More

The titles says it all. This place houses few artifacts belonging to the Salar Jung's and not a worthy visit unless you have nothing better to do and have been to all the other awesome places in Hyd.
