Falaknuma Palace was built by Nawab Vikar-ul-Umra. With the construction laid out in 1884, it took almost 9 years to complete the construction of the palace. One of the popular tourist spots of Hyderabad, Falaknuma Palace was later purchased by Nizam VI in 1897. The palace served as a royal guest house to him.

Constructed over an area of 32 acres and approximately 2,000 feet above Hyderabad, the Falaknuma Palace has been constructed with Italian marble. Built by an Italian architect, the palace is one of the architectural wonders of 19th century and is often referred as "mirror of the sky".

"Glamorous!" -
Rating: 5 stars
I had been wanting to see Falaknuma Palace. but it's not a tourist spot, as in you can not visit it as you can other places like Golconda. So I had to go with Nizam package, it's offered by Telangana tourism. They charged us around 3000 but it was worth. We could see Chowmahalla palace, then lighting at Golconda too. It was quite enjoyable ...I covered a lot within one day! Falaknuma palace timings and entry fee..everything was taken care by the operator..we could just sit and enjoy...it was a unique experience...such a grand palace...having tea there..it was amazing!

It is said that that Nizam was a great traveller and that's the reason why he had such rich collection of status, paintings, books and even furniture...all this you can actually see at Falaknuma. you can enjoy a royal living here..the interiors of rooms..its gardens..everything takes you back to nizam times..this is not a tourist spot now so as such no fixed entry fee or timings of Falaknuma palace but some tours are available which take you for a short trip inside palace..you can look up online for that..

Can say one thing for sure, it is one of the most stunning palaces of India. It is converted into a luxury hotel ...thats we could explore this place even better...we felt actually like a royal! everything is so grand about this palace..even chandeliers! There many paintings and statues..which are still kept intact...all throughout my stay I was mesmerised by the sheer beauty! for those who are not staying here, Falaknuma palace visiting hours are not fixed..only throughout the official tour you can visit it.

I went to Falaknuma palace with my husband for dinner...it was our anniversary so we wanted to something different. Trust me it was our one of the best dinners till date! its not like a normal fine dining experience but so much more! as we were going for dinner we didn’t check timings and entry fee of Falaknuma palace..but ya do make reservations in advance...even at the entrance they will check that...food was not exceptional but i liked the service and the ambiance..we could also see the real beauty of the palace that added to the overall experience.

We wanted to Falaknuma Palace, but as it is not open for public we took the tour package from Telangana tourism. The tour included not only Falaknuma trip...we were taken to other places as well. We had an amazing time having tea and snacks at Falaknuma. As far as Falaknuma timings are concerned, I am not sure...we just followed the tour plan. in any case the experience was memorable! The palace is just BEAUTIFUL...it felt quite royal to eat there!

"Well maintained palace in Hyderabad!" -
Rating: 5 stars
you can see how luxuriously Nizams have lived...gardens, furniture, status, paintings..everything...for a second I felt i am living the same life! its now a star hotel of Taj, so you can be sure to have excellent services. to visit here there is no fixed Falaknuma timings as it's not public place anymore..which is kind of sad..but to you stay here its all worth...the experience was more than amazing! and also there are some tours which let visitors have some time inside the palace...

"Awesome but expensive!" -
Rating: 3 stars
This palace is just too good for spending some days here...the beauty is so captivating, like an architectural masterpiece. I have seen many palaces and forts but Falaknuma surpasses many other. may be because it is well maintained..that's why still looks so fresh..but yet the only set back is its very expensive. so plan properly before coming here..may be once in year. If you are planning your visit here..forget about falaknuma palace entry fee or anything..but decide on a stay here..although expensive it's worth afterall.

Falaknuma palace Hyderabad is breathtaking...its gardens...royal interiors are simply awesome. gardens are also designed in many different ways.. Mughal, Japanese and Rajasthani. I especially found the library quite attractive..it has rich collection..with rarest of books..old manuscripts and Quran. We just loved every moment there...literally! I am not sure what are the Falaknuma Palace visiting hours but there are some special tours which you can book or simply book a stay here the way we did! :)

We went to Falaknuma on our last visit to Hyderabad...its expansive, grand and just too stunning! We were told that there are more than 200 huge rooms inside it and about 22 halls.. this palace is majestic! we actually wanted to just go to see..but while searching for timings for Falaknuma palace visiting hours and entry fee we got to know that it now a star hotel..so we decided to have two day of stay..stay here was just perfect..the service,..rooms..interiors ..we might just go there again!

"Very different from others, lots to see!" -
Rating: 5 stars
Falaknuma Palace is quite near to Charminar. so we planned our trip that way, we went through Telangana tourism tours...but later we hopped out separately and went to Charminar & laad bazaar. The day was well spent! As such with tour you need not pay additional Falaknuma palace entry fee as everything in included in the tour package. it was better as we didn’t have to do anything..they did every arrangement. But ya we wanted some more time at the palace which we couldn’t get! there is so much to see at Falaknuma palace!
