The Council Hall has been converted into a museum with a rare collection of manuscripts and priceless books on display. The Nizam often met important officials and dignitaries here.

It is particularly famous for the ornate work on its walls and ceilings, a mechanical clock that has been functioning for over 250 years, the 19 chandeliers of Belgian crystal in the Durbar Hall and the marble platform on which the Takht-e-Nishan (royal seat) was placed.

The museum also has paintings, photographs, textiles, books, religious objects, maps and arms on display for public viewing. The Buggie Khaana houses the collection of the various Nizams’ vintage cars and is open to the public.

The complex consists of 4 palaces as part of the southern courtyard, Aftab Mahal, Afzal Mahal, Tahniyat Mahal and Mahtab Mahal, arranged around a central fountain and pool. The northern courtyard consists of the Bara Imam, a long corridor of rooms on the east side facing the central fountain and pool that once housed the administrative wing in the Chowmahalla Palace.
