Chowmahalla Palace

During our week in Hyderabad, some of the places we visited include the Mecca Mosque, the Charminar (the icon of Hyderabad), Sufi Shrine, Birla Mandir (pure white marble Hindu temple) and Salar Jung Museum (pretty good actually).

I personally enjoyed Chowmahalla Palace because it has a great combination of nice architecture, history, artifacts and gardens all within the sprawling compound.

The magnificent palace of the Nizams, unique for its style and elegance, originally covered 45 acres but today only 12 acres remain.
