The Falaknuma Palace

The Falaknuma Palace is about three miles from Charminar. This palace was built by one of the three paigan chief, Nawab Sir, Viquar-ul-Umer. He sold this palace to the Nizam VI, Nawab Mir Mahboob Ali Khan at the cost of thirty five lakhs of Asif Jahi Rupees in 1897 it is regarded as one of the finest palaces in India. No building in the City of Hyderabad equals this from the point of view of architecture and design. There is a much similarity in this palace as that of king Lousis-XIV.
