Retreat: Taj Falaknuma Palace
India > Hyderabad


Passed on for generations like a precious jewel, Falaknuma Palace, or ‘Mirror of the Sky’, was the residence of Nizam Mehboob Ali Khan. After ten years of sensitive restoration, the Taj has infused new life into this sixty room private palace to offer visitors a glimpse of the imperial lifestyle of the Nizams who governed the legendary city of Hyderabad. What was once the sole preserve of visiting royalty-King Edward VIII and the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II; will soon be yours to discover: the Taj Group of Hotels has sensitively restored the palace not only to accommodate the privileged in 60 glamorous rooms and suites, but also to accommodate the extravagance of the ’then‘ with all the comfort of the ’now‘.
