#TravelIndiaDiaries : Feel like a royalty in this palace

By Aakriti

“At 20, who is about to turn 21 in a month’s time, I cannot see my life filled with words like boredom or monotony.
Travelling and exploring is what I want to do, which in turn would let me grow, learn and get new experiences….”

Hi everyone, I’m back with another amazing travel experience that I have had in Hyderabad two months back from now on my college excursion. This one left me feeling like a royalty myself .. wink wink ;-)  ;-)

Every time I visit any palaces or historical royalties, I wish I was born a queen myself. Yes, I am my daddy’s princess for sure, but a royal queen…. Aaha! The luxury, the exaggerated buildings, intensive royal treatments and what not!! I wish I could have that all.

This was the feeling I had as I went to visit one of the famous palaces in Hyderabad,


THE CHOWMAHALLA PALACE

The Chowmahalla Palace is the official palace of the Nizams of Hyderabad state. It was the seat of the Asafjahi dynasty and was the official residence of the Nizams of Hyderabad while they ruled their state. The palace remains the property of Barkat Ali Khan Mukarram Jah, heir of the Nizams.

It looks a tad bit more than ordinary, very bland and boring from the outside to be honest, but the moment a person enters inside, nobody can even imagine if it was the same place you entered as you saw outside. I was spell bound, mesmerised and went all " WOOOWWWW" with my jaw dropping down till the floor.

The palace is in Hyderabad city itself. So if you are planning to visit the city, do look for some budget hotels in Hyderabad. The city, being a capital and a tourist hub too, has a number of options including affordable hotels in Hyderabad for frequent travellers.

It’s that amazingly pretty. Marble flooring, ceiling as high as any other palace, full of antique chandeliers, pillars carved with beautiful patterns and each floor converted into museum for exhibiting items showcasing the lives of the Nizams like crockery sets, weapons etc.

I was more than amazed to visit this palace, and did not want to leave it AT ALL. I just wanted to stare at the walls, the pillars….  I almost felt like a queen, somewhat jealous of whoever lived there back in the time … hahaha !!

You can enjoy the pictures and gaze at the beauty of the palace…. It is much more beautiful than these pictures. I totally suggest everyone to go visit this, its one hell of a pretty place to be in.






You will find a variety of stay options in the city. From 3 star hotels in Hyderabad to the very easily available cheap hotels in Hyderabad, there's something for all pockets. You can read more about the Chowmahalla Palace and the Nizams here and here.
Till next,
Enjoy ….
