Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad, welcomes guests to experience royal treatment

The 60-key Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad, in the Indian state of Telangana, has won Trip Advisor’s title of Best Palace Hotels in the World 2015, based on consistently achieved positive reviews by travellers.

After ten years of sensitive restoration the property opened in November 2010 providing guests a glimpse of the elusive imperial lifestyle of the Nizams who governed the legendary city of Hyderabad. In Urdu, Falak-numa stands of ‘mirror of the sky’, indicating the property’s elevated status atop a 2,000-foot hilltop overlooking Hyderabad.

The property, now thoroughly restored, was built in the shape of a scorpion, with two stings.

Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad is among the most luxurious of all Baroque mansions in India. The interiors of the Taj Falaknuma Palace are a statement in royal opulence, replete in its large Venetian chandeliers, rare furniture, grand marble staircases, priceless statues and objects d’art and murals encased in ornate frames along with a Palace Library, which is a collector’s envy and home to rare manuscripts and an acclaimed collections of books.
