I had never heard of Chowmahalla Palace when we visited Hyderabad. We were totally amazed by this complex. This actually consists of 4 palaces. They are all well maintained and a treat to walk through. My top picks for Hyderabad would be Chowmahalla, Golconda Ford, Qutub Shahi Tombs and Salarjung Museum. Here is a link from my blog with pictures of Chowmahalla Palace : http://10yearitch.com/states/andhra-pradesh/photo-post-chowmahalla-palace-hyderabad-andhara-pradesh/

Try to see a concert there, magical. The proyect is just starting so there were a few hiccups but if it gets on its way, a trip into the Nizams lifestyle.

went for a classical musical concert featuring Pdt. Jasraj which is apparently held every year free of cost for city music lovers. The backdrop was excellent..
The whole palace was lit by huge chandeliers communicating the glory of a past era. I heard somewhere that the palace is maintained by the Taj explaining its relatively well maintained architecture. Its a shame that is off limits at night generally and closes for general visits before 5.30pm.

Chowmahalla palace is spread of 4 palaces. Magnificent collection Arts, crafts, crockery, armoury, photos used by Nizam are on display.

A few of the most attractive items are the unique clock @ Taniyahat Mahal and collection of cars and bikes including a grand and award winning yellow Rolls Royce.

A must see for those who are interested in heritage and history of Hyderabad and Nizams.
