Destination Hyderabad

The Taj Group of Hotels in association with WeddingSutra.com invited some of India’s luxury wedding planners to stay at Hyderabad’s legendary Falaknuma Palace. Many of India’s grandest weddings have taken place in Hyderabad and with the revival of palace properties like Taj Falaknuma Palace and Chowmallah Palace, the invitees were most excited to visit Hyderabad- after all, they would not only experience the hospitality of the Taj Group, they would also get to see how and why the group spent 15 years restoring and renovating the palace.

A horse-drawn carriage (restored from the Nizam’s time) takes guests up a hill to the palace.

The Taj Falaknuma Palace is like no Indian palace most of us have seen in Rajasthan and other states, it looks almost European– a grand country mansion of an English nobleman.

More a palace, than a hotel.

“So you stayed at the magnificent Falaknuma. I’m envious”? many friends remarked. Staying there was not just a special experience, it was an experience of a lifetime- after all Falaknuma Palace offers guests an experience than is hard to replicate anywhere in the world.
