Places to stay near Taj Falaknuma Palace
Reviews • 4
The Taj Falaknuma is a palace which has been converted into a hotel property by the Taj Group. Amazing hotel with the best views of the city, it lies at a distance from the city. Worth a visit if you have an extra day and are willing to spoil yourself in luxury. There are entry fees for entering the hotel property.
One would wonder why I haven't mentioned the Falaknuma Palace as part of the schedule. A meal at Falaknuma requires you to make a reservation; its not a place you can otherwise visit. No doubt its a place worth visiting, but the exclusivity sometimes make it out of bounds. Finishing a 2-day trip with a dinner at Falaknuma is ideal, only if you get a reservation that is! And yes, the budget of this trip doesn't obviously include the cost of dining at Falaknuma :)Great place for history enthusiasts. If you have the time and interest, I would suggest the audio tour.
The Falaknuma Palace is probably the most royal and luxurious on this list, primarily because it was not allowed to turn into a ruin with time. Until 2000, Falaknuma was a private property of the Nizams, but due to the decline of zamindari in Hyderabad (and India), the family agreed to a more economically beneficial step and let the Taj group of hotels protect their legacy. The five acre complex has some of the world's greatest accessories, like the largest collection of Venetian chandeliers in the world, the famed dining hall, which seats 100 guests at a time and a walnut-wood library which has one of the finest collections of Quran.
