Purana Haveli
Purana Haveli is the main residence of Mahbub Ali Pasha that lays one of the many palaces of Hyderabad’s Nizam. It is built during the mid- during the Qutub Shahi dynasty in the late 16th century. Later on, the building has become Purani Haveli. The palace reclaimed most of its former glory in the 19th century When Nawab Mir Mahboob Ali Khan Siddiqi, the sixth Nizam, made it his official residence.

Initially, the place was assumed to be the official residence of Mir Momen, in the late 16th century, during the Qutub Shahi dynasty. In the 18th century, the second Nizam, Asaf Jah II was renovated with the intention of giving it to his son and successor, Sikandar Jah. The complex is designed in U-shaped, with a central single storeyed building. It is built as the royal palace that has been constructed with the facade of 18th century European architecture. The courtyard, however, is definitely Indian, forming a comfortable combination of aesthetics between the two.

It boasts of a sprawling complex where the Nizam lived a lavish life that is located on the eastern wing of the building. It has Nizam’s wooden wardrobe, a giant 73-square-meter room containing two closets and an elevator. This haveli stands as a breathtaking edifice that displays India’s rich and diverse history, literally translated as “Old Quarters”.

Purani Haveli also houses the Nizam’s museum exhibiting the vast collection of artifacts of the last Nizam of the state of Hyderabad. It includes souvenirs, gifts, and mementos and also vintage cars on display including a 1930 Rolls-Royce, a Packard, and a Jaguar Mark.
