Ahoy Hyderabadis! Get ready for a nostalgic walk at the regal Chowmahalla Palace
History and architecture buffs, listen up! There’s a walkthrough to be organised at Chowmahalla Palace - the residence of the Nizams which stands out for its brilliant architecture. It gives observers a glimpse of the lavish lifestyle of the erstwhile rulers of the Deccan - imagine a line up of vintage cars and a 250-year-old clock tower. This guided heritage walk that’s being planned on February 10, will take the visitors to this resplendent palace that was built by Nizam Salabat Jung, and still bears the pride of the
Asaf Jahi dynasty, which established the Nizami rule in the Deccan.
You will be able to acquaint yourself with the illustrious history of the Nizams, with their princely dresses, court uniforms, armour, furniture, ceramic ware, paintings and framed photographs. Hyderabad is among 37 cities which is hosting a month-long, multi-city second edition of India Heritage Walk Festival organised jointly by Sahapedia, the online resource on Indian arts and culture, and UNESCO, to encourage citizens to explore the tangible and intangible heritage of their cities and towns.
