India's answer to the opulance of Versailles, the Falaknuma Palace is now a Taj luxury hotel opening doors to the Nizam's days of glory. Find the best of Europe at the turn of the century here and make no mistake this is a time capsule etched in luxury.
The Falaknuma Palce is set high up on a hill with glittering Hyderabad spread out like a Persian carpet below. Enjoy the Nizam's architecture and artefacts restored and still off the tourist radars.
Try the 'Kakinada Crab Cakes' at the local cuisine restaurant, which has managed to surprise both the local and international visitor alike.
