We happened to visit Sudha cars and thanks to Google Maps, we found this Palace close by. I always wondered to visit this place and it finally happened on a Sunday afternoon. The entrance and sculptures are sheer grandeur. Specially the vintage cars are not to miss.

This is a well maintained museum where one can have a glimpse of the weapons, dresses etc. used by the Nizams. The museum has many vintage cars, motors cycles, rickshaws etc.

There are... More

Well i found it average because it only reflect royalty and luxury. No such explanation of the presence and the existence. They ask you for extra charge upon over tickets for clicking photos. That, s not a good thing. The vintage car is a must visit to see the rolls royes and other beauties.
