Welcome To Chowmahalla

A wonder of the past; a present-day splendour

Situated in a secluded corner of Motigalli, in Hyderabad’s bustling Old City, the Chowmahalla Palace offers visitors a peek into the luxurious lifestyles of the Nizams.

The Chowmahalla Palace is among the greatest legacies of the Nizams, who were passionate and dedicated patrons of arts, architecture and science. In its heyday, the Palace was the seat of invincible power and tremendous opulence.

Today, the Chowmahalla Palace stands as a tribute to the architectural and aesthetic brilliance of the Nizams; as a monument to the rich history of Hyderabad. It is open to visitors throughout the year.
