The city and the fortress were built on a granite hill that is 120 meters (480 ft) high, surrounded by massive battlements. The fort was rebuilt and strengthened by Rani Rudrama Devi and her successor Prataparudra

10 . Falaknuma Palace :- It belonged to the Paigah family, and it was later owned by the Nizam of Hyderabad.[2] It is on a 32-acre (13 ha) area in Falaknuma, 5 km from Charminar. It was built by Nawab Vikar-ul-Umra, prime minister of Hyderabad and the uncle and brother-in-law of the Nizam VI, Nawab Mir Mahboob Ali Khan Bahadur. One of the highlights of the palace is the state reception room, where the ceiling is decorated with frescoes and gilded reliefs. The ballroom contains a two-ton manually operated organ said to be the only one of its kind in the world.

The palace has 60 rooms and 22 halls. It has considerable collections of the Nizam's treasure including paintings, statues, furniture, manuscripts, books, and an extensive jade collection. It has a library with a carved walnut roof, a replica of the one at Windsor Castle; it had an extensive collection of Qurans.

The dining hall

The dining hall can seat 101 guests. The chairs are made of carved rosewood with green leather upholstery. The tableware was made of gold and crystal to which fluted music was added.

Burroughs and Watts from England designed two identical billiards tables, one of which is in Buckingham Palace and the other in the palace's billiards room.[4]

The palace was the private property of the Nizam family, and not normally open to the public, until 2000.
