I am passionate about architecture, and I wanted to share on my blog a few pictures of the Falaknuma Palace that I visited for the first time. The symmetry is perfect for this neo-classical palace that seems to be built in the shape of a scorpion. Perched on top of a hill overlooking the city, the view from the lush suspended gardens offer sweeping panoramas of the city. The interiors subtly and skilfully mix European styles. Every piece of furniture is of a quality rarely seen outside of European museums. The objects are all interesting and of course, the 19th century crystal chandeliers are the perfect match for the grandeur of the palace.
Pure elegance are the words that came to my mind when I was there. I really enjoyed spending time taking in the aesthetics of this place.
