Chowmahalla's Fading Glory

Chowmahalla Palace was the seat of the Nizams of Hyderabad, prior to India's independence from Britian.  It was completed in the 1880s.

A visitor sees hints of a history of significant wealth, but sadly the structures and artifacts are crumbling through minimal maintenance.  There's a century-old Rolls-Royce, some fancy chandeliers, and a rusty collection of armor and weapons inside.
