Here’s my first entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Last week’s topic was gardens. Here’s a link to Cee Neuner’s blog.







These are five different pictures of the Gardens at the Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, India. I visited the beautiful Falaknuma Palace around a week before my wedding day. The Falaknuma Palace is a palace in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It originally belonged to the Paigah family, and was later owned by the Nizam of Hyderabad. It is on a hillock and covers a 32-acre (13 ha) area in Falaknuma, which is 5 kilometres from the city of Charminar. It was built by Nawab Sir Viqar-ul-Umra, the Prime Minister of Hyderabad and the uncle & brother-in-law of the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad. Falak-numa means “Like the Sky” or “Mirror of Sky” in Urdu.
