The world’s longest wardrobe, vintage cars and precious antiques adorn this royal palace that fuses European and Indian styles of architecture.

Purani Haveli is a fine example of India’s blend of architectural styles. The complex was originally built in the 16th century, but 200 years later was renovated to add European elements of style. Shaped like a horseshoe, the complex comprises a palace, a museum and a school. It is also the home of the “world’s longest wardrobe,” vintage cars and lavish antiques.

The Nizams first occupied this palace in the 18th century. Admire traditional clothes from the Nizam era in the famous wardrobe. The space is 240 feet (73 meters) long and occupies two stories. It is located in one of two halls that are 1,000 feet (305 meters) long. Take a look at the old, wooden elevator, which is the oldest hand-cranked wooden elevator in India.

As you walk through the palace, look down to take in the intricate mosaic floors and tiles all around the building. Then walk out into the Indian-style courtyard, which is in contrast to the palace’s European facade.

Visit the museum to see antique relics and family heirlooms. Browse the collection of silver and gold items, such as a model, made of gold, of Hyderabad’s most famous buildings. Don’t miss the 1930 Rolls Royce among other vintage vehicles on display.

The palace is open daily from morning until late afternoon with the exception of Fridays, when it is closed. There is a small entrance fee and an additional cost if you want to take photographs within the building.

Find Purani Haveli to the south of the Musi River. Take a bus to the Purani Haveli or Mir Alam Mandi stops that are located near the entrance. There’s a train station 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) to the east, a 10-minute walk away. While in the area, also visit the Salar Jung Museum, which is a short walk from the palace.
