Throne Room at Chowmahalla Palace, Hyderabad, India

The Chowmahalla palace is an interesting historical location in the city of Hyderbad (South India). The palace was built in the late 18th century and houses an impressive Durbar Hall (Throne room) that is resplendent with many many chandeliers.

Don’t miss the exquisite works on the wall. Truly you can see that the room was built in a way to impress on visitors that this was the nerve centre of Hyderabad.

If you’re ever in Hyderabad and have a bit of spare time do go and visit the palace.

  4. Breathtaking! What does it say about me that my first thought was how hard it would be to keep all those crystal chandeliers clean? Probably that I would not have been sitting on the throne. 😉

      Thank you so much for visiting! It was a really a beautiful place. If it were better restored and maintained it would be even more spectacular.
