Soon after, palace historian Prabhakar Mahindrakar begins the guided tour of the palace. Character of a man, dressed in a flowing black sherwani, he passes gently on the rosewood floor. The palace is famous for the largest dining table in the world. With a capacity of 101 people, the table is 108 feet long. The Nizam took advantage of this table to organize a dinner for its royal guests. It was Nizams Lalace, leased by Taj Group. You can feel the Nawab culture, diving carts that you can enjoy, see the old Nawabs furniture badly, the food is served Nawabi style, Nawabi dishes.but for all this you have to pay very dearly, but feel like Nawab for the day “The restoration work requires crores of Rupees and sometimes takes several years,  Chinmai Sharma said of Taj. Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad, reopened in 2010 after 10 years of mammoth restoration. Princess Esra, the first wife of Hyderabad`s last Nizam, has been very interested in restoring the vast 32-hectare plot, which now offers 60 opulent suites. Ritesh Sharma, general manager of Falaknuma, says the restoration of the palace carpet took more than three years. The fabrics of the palate are more than 70 years old and were imported from Europe. It took nearly four years for the substances to return to their original splendor.

Occupation, at least for the biggest players, is not a challenge. The occupancy rate in Taj palaces is more than 60 percent in one year. “That`s the advantage of a smaller inventory,” Sharma says. “Our palaces have never felt the pinch of low occupancy,” says Chinmai Sharma. He says rooms can order $800 to $1,000 a day in high season. Even in the off-season, rates do not fluctuate sharply. Obviously, serving Hyderabadi food in Hyderabadi is a dangerous undertaking. As a result, the Taj may have taken a much less ambitious approach to Sunday brunch. Served on the first floor of the palate, it is a buffet, which could just as well be served at Kafe Fontana or Shamiana: Dosas, Idlis, Pao-Bhaji, eggs, sausages, roastbeef, sushi, dim sum, Nihari Korma and by pastry chef Rohit Sangwan (creator of the Khubani-ka-meetha above), superlateral dark chocolate cake, cooked yogurt, salted caramel chocolate and much more. The palace was built in the form of a scorpion with two stitches spread as wings in the north. The central part is occupied by the main building and kitchen, Gol Bangla, Zenana Mehal and Haremsviertels.

The Nawab was an avid traveler and his influences are manifested in the architecture that combines Italian and Tudor influences. For a renewable 30-year lease, falaknuma was handed over to Taj Group. As part of the deal, the luxury hotel chain agreed to pay the stunning bill for the renovations. Every detail was overseen by Princess Ezra herself in a transformation that lasted more than a decade. Once again, the princess spared no expenses and brought in experts from all over the world, each of them charged with the solemn duty of bringing the apple from the eye of the Nizams to its original state. If you want to live like a king for a few days, this is the place for you. The guests of the house are carried on the castle promenade and it must be an unforgettable experience. If the deal is reached, it will bring Mukarram Jah`s fortune back to life. Royal, three times married, owes about Rs 8 billion in taxes on his Land in Hyderabad just.

One of the reasons we feel so underdressed is the splendor of our environment. Up close, it is clear why the Taj spent 15 years (and Rs 100 crore) on restoration. Every corner of the rooms is filled with artwork, every chair and table acts like an antique and I`m starting to wonder if the palace really looked so good when the Nizams (some of whom were notorious avarice players) themselves…
