Moreover, the palace is special..
The palace was built in 1900 by Nawab Vikarur Umra, who served as Prime Minister to the sixth Nizam, Mir Mahbub Ali Khan. It was named ‘Paiga Palace’ after the dynasty. But the Nizam liked this building and gave it to him as a gift. Mir Mahbub Ali Khan along with his family used to visit this palace from time to time.
About 124 years ago, this palace was built in a European style, spread over two and a half acres and spread over two floors with modern touches. The palace has a 22 feet high ceiling. There are 20 rooms on the first floor. Their bathroom rooms are 300 feet each. A wooden staircase is arranged to reach the second floor.
After the Nizam’s rule, this palace came under the control of the government. Assigned to the Consulate General of the United States of America, Hyderabad from 24 October 2008. In 2023, a new US Consulate building was constructed in the Financial District and the office moved there. So this palace has become a platform for auspicious works and other events. The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Corporation will take over the building in 2023 and oversee its management.
The Telangana government has decided to use this very spacious palace in the core city to provide the most important services. It is planning to set up the CM’s camp office.
