Royal Indian Heritage....Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

The interiors are a visual delight and its design an architet's challenge....

The banquet hall at Falaknuma Palace.....
Study of the Nizam Mahaboob Ali Khan at Falaknuma Palace
The drawing room at Afzal Mahal.....

The Falaknuma Palace, for all its grandeur, still emanets that warmth and a gracious way of living...
Designed by an Italian architect, this palace has a fine blend of the Italian and Tudor architecture. Located around 5km south of Charminar, Falaknuma sits on a hillock, earning its name which means "a mirror to the sky"

The Fountain is constructed of  Georgia Pink Marble... located at Columbus Drive(301 East) and Congress Parkway(500 South) in Grand Park. Kate Buckingham dedicated the structure to the people of Chicago in 1927 in memory of her late brother, Clarence.
