Looking Up in the Taj Falaknuma Palace

Ceilings echoed floor designs, ceilings told stories, ceilings copied from European castles with their own unique Indian interpertations. (the maidens have to make you smile). Carved, coffered, inlaid, painted with scenes or strict geometric deco styled designs, in all the public rooms the ceilings were sumptuous....the more private family rooms just had glorious Belgian crystal chandeliers!

Hi! You're back! Nice to see you again.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who looks up! The Palace is indeed beautiful. Does anyone live there now?
