History :


Viqar-ul-Umra, the Prime Minister of Hyderabad, used the palace as his private residence until the palace was handed over to the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad around 1897–1898. His monogram is on the furniture, walls and ceiling of the palace.

 

The palace was built and furnished at a cost of forty lakh rupees, which necessitated borrowing money from the Bank of Bengal. In the spring of 1897 Mehboob Ali Pasha Nizam VI was invited to the palace and extended his stay to a week, a fortnight, and then a month, which prompted Sir Viqar to offer it to him. The Nizam accepted but paid some of the value of the palace; the Paigah family maintains that around 20 lakh rupees was paid.

 

The Nizam used the palace as a guest house for the royal guests visiting the kingdom of Hyderabad. The list of royal visitors included King George, Queen Mary, Edward VIII and Tsar Nicholas II. 

 

The Falaknuma fell into disuse after the 1950s. The last important guest was the President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, in 1951. The palace was then restored after being leased by the Taj Group of Hotels; the restoration, which began in 2010, was managed by H.H Princess Esra Jah, first wife of the 8th Nizam.
