We’ve all had a little sneak peek into the lives of the Royalty through media. All of us have fancied about the luxuries and limelight they enjoy and have lived it in words of the author. That feeling would come back while roaming around the corridors of the forts.
And not to forget, their elite possessions have been the talk of the town ever since. From diamond studded cars to diamond being used as paperweight (yes! Mir Osman Ali Khan Siddiqi, Nizam of the Princely State of Hyderabad used a diamond worth $200 million as a paperweight), everything is awe-inspiring.
