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

Officially known as 'Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain'...is one of Chicago's most popular landmarks.
The majestic and historic fountain is one of the largest in the world.
E.H.Bennett designed the Fountain to represent Lake Mishigan with four sea horses, built by Marcel Loyau, to symbolize the four states that touch the lake: Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.
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.
