KING KOTHI PALACE

King Kothi Palace (Urdu: شاہ کوٹھی محل) or Nazri Bagh Palace) is a royal palace in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. It was the palace where the erstwhile ruler, the Seventh Nizam, Osman Ali Khan, Asaf Jah VII, of Hyderabad state lived.



History

The palace was constructed by the Kamal Khan, and it was sold to Nizam once he expressed his desire for the palace. The young Nizam moved in when he was only 13. After his accession to the throne in 1911, he continued to stay at the palace and did not move to Chowmahalla Palace where his father lived.

Initially, Kamal Khan constructed this palace for his personnel residence: Thus the palace main gate, passerby corridors, windows and doors were engraved with the sign of "K K". Later when Nizam purchased this palace, as it was a royal residence now, the young Nizam felt against his pride to have those abbreviations of other nawabs; he passed a ferman and changed the abbreviation "K K" to "King Kothi," meaning kings mansion. Thus the name King Kothi came into existence.

In the sprawling palace, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, pearls and lesser gems were stored in steel trunks fastened with English-made padlocks.

The palace has three main buildings, divided into two groups. It also has a huge library used by the Last Nizam.
