Royal Indian Heritage....Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

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

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"
