Paigah Palace is a beautiful two-storied building with a century’s worth of history. It is located in the city of Hyderabad and is one of the most demanded banquet halls during the wedding season. It was built by Sir Vicar-Ul-Umra, also known as Iqbal Ud Dowlah. It has been in his family since its construction, and even today, some of his descendants live here. It is a beautiful palace with big verandahs overlooking lush gardens.
Its serenity is unmatched and is the only palace left in India where you can get married while sticking to a moderate budget!
Right in front of Paigah Palace is Paigah castle. It is a fully air-conditioned banquet hall with big chandeliers and gothic architecture. Right behind the Paigah castle is Paigah guest room. It has four, beautifully decorated rooms available to the clients and their families.
Paigah Palace is an architectural gem and not making use of it will not do it justice. It is a photographers dream and an ideal place for a pre-wedding shoot. You can choose from a lot of different themes as it can cater to many of them. You can do a royal-themed pre-wedding shoot or even a gothic one as there architecture is fully based on that. You can even do very creative shoots which require totally different décor.
