Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad

Taj Falaknuma’s library is styled on the one enjoyed by our Queen, in Windsor Castle. The rest of the Hyderabad palace has overtones of India’s colonial past with grand colonnades and Palladian-esque architecture.

But this palace stands high above a busting, jostling Indian city, wreathed in clouds and steeped in an atmosphere of privilege, wealth and opulence. You will have images of yourself attending magnificent balls in a bygone era, as you descend the Falaknuma’s sweeping marble staircase. You will dine beneath colossal Venetian crystal chandeliers, lounge beside tinkling fountains, marvel at the extravagant murals encased in ornate frames and experience the fabled Nizam’s hospitality.
