King Kothi Palace

King Kothi Palace is the palace where the erstwhile ruler, the Seventh Nizam, Osman Ali Khan, Asaf Jah VII, of Hyderabad state moved in at the age of 13 and lived until he died in 1967.

The palace has two main divisions – the east wing was used by the Nizam for official and ceremonial purposes and the west wing, also called Mubarak Mansion (known as Nazri Bagh) was the Nizam’s residential palace.

The East wing now houses the State Government Hospital,  while many elements of the palace can still be seen. The arch that is seen in the image appears identical to the ones in the photograph shot by Raja Deen Dayal ages ago. Of course, the grandeur and opulence is ostensibly absent or may feel out-of-place in a hospital.
