Eid Mubarak and Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to everyone celebrating!
I posted about a couple of devdis in Hyderabad - the Khursheed Jah Baradari and the Asman Jah Devdi. Completing the trio of Paigah devdis located in the vicinity of the Charminar, is the Iqbal-ud-Daula devdi.
Nawab Vicar-ul-Umra, who was given the title Iqbal-ud-Daula, was the maternal grandson of Hyderabad's third Nizam. The palatial Iqbal-ud-daula devdi stretches along almost an entire street. Like the other two Paigah devdis nearby, it is built in a fusion of Oriental and European architectural styles.
I'm sharing some images that I shot of the devdi, but I don't think they do justice to the beautiful devdi - it's way too big.
