Situated close to Charminar, this lesser known palace in Hyderabad (India), was built by Salabat Jung (Nizam's Prime Minister) in 1750. It is said to be a replica of the Palace of Shah of Iran at Teheran. [I have not seen the latter and cannot vouch for it.] Today, this palace is used to host gorgeous parties.
