Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
Relive the grandeur of days gone by during a visit to Taj Falaknuma Palace, an ornate old building that now acts as a luxury hotel. Completed in 1893 according to a design by an English architect, the building has several interesting external features, including the fact that the whole thing is meant to look like a scorpion when seen from above, with two wings acting as the stingers. Take a tour of the erstwhile palace to see the Italian and Tudor influenced interiors, then treat yourself to a spot of high tea--a meal much enjoyed by the upper classes during the colonial era. PutTaj Falaknuma Palace into our Hyderabad online holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
