Finding the Grandest Place of All - Chowmahalla Palace

You know how it feels when it’s so humid and hot at the same time, and it’s like your gasping for dear old life? Yes, there are moments… or places rather, that can induce such experience, and if you haven’t had one, then you probably are too sheltered to experience third world adventures. Or even Africa or near-equator type of city strolls, perhaps? It’s a different kind of travel adrenaline rush and you would rarely see this as a bucket list, but let me tell you a secret - it actually is a revelation to experience such. But before trying out this one, why not try this instead…

First off, side story. Was with my Indian buddy in India (which is one of the hottest places on earth… next to fire (?), lava (?), and a burning house (!)). There are places that are cold in India, but of course when the sun is up and it’s summer, what can you expect. Dehydrated as I was because of the intense humidity and heat, I felt like starting a trend: #FaintFest. But before I had a chance to initiate such deed, this grandiose of a place appeared like an oasis in a desert. I was symbolically out of breath, because of this beauty.

The Chowmahalla Palace is one of the nicest and most extravagant palaces you’ll ever find here in Asia, and there’s something unique and lingering about this royal place that’s not found elsewhere. It’s modelled on Shah of Iran's palace, and you can see the intense details in its clock tower, council halls, and courtyards.

It’s a rare find to have such kind of diamond in the rough here in Asia, so the Chowmahalla Palace is indeed a must see. It’s like the Taj Mahal of Hyderabad, and to experience a different kind of travel adrenaline rush that’s rarely on any bucket list is worth being a part of.
