Once a seat of the great Nizams, this palace has played a perfect host to numerous royal guests and still welcomes its admirers with a majestic charm.

Embellished with gushing fountains and opulent gardens, the palace-complex now retains two courtyards (northern and southern), marvellous palaces, the Durbar Hall, Clock Tower, Roshan Bangla and the Council Hall. The domes, arches and the elaborate stucco work of the palace emanate a grand mix of Persian, Rajasthani, Indo-Saracenic and European styles. As one steps into the palace, the eyes are left bedazzled by the overhead, Belgian crystal-made chandeliers and the mirror-finish, white marbled floor.

With numerous adornments and enchantments, the Chowmahalla Palace still stands tall with an indomitable prowess to impress millions with its sparkling glamour. Important facts about the palace:
