Hyderabad House(New Delhi)

The history of Hyderabad House takes us back to pre-independent India. Situated on the Ashoka Road, Hyderabad House is one of the most attractive buildings in New Delhi. On January 1, 1877 Queen Victoria took the title of the Empress of British India or Kaiser-c-Hind in the Deccan. During the same year the capital was shifted from Calcutta, the headquarters of the East India Company to old Delhi.

In 1930 it was decided that the capital of British India will be shifted to New Delhi. Sir Edwin Lutyens, the renowned architect of England, was summoned to Delhi to design the building. Sir Edwin designed a new type of architecture for New Delhi. It was a combination of Hindu, Muslim and modern architecture, the dome and pillars being a mark of style. He built all important buildings which include the Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament House.

The Hyderabad House was built by the Nizam and on the guidelines of Lutyens’ architecture, the construction was supervised by Au Nawaz Jung,the well-known engineer of Hyderabad. The construction of the building was completed in the year 1933. The capital of British India was also shifted from Old Delhi to New Delhi in the same year. The Hyderabad House is almost a replica of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

It was constructed during the reign of Mir Osman Au Khan, the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad and it was used by important dignitaries who visited the capital. In 1948 after the Police Action the 1-lyderabad House was taken over by the Indian Government. Today, the Hyderabad House is the Prime Minister’s guest house under the Government of India hospitality Centre. It caters to the VVIPs who visit our country.

This exquisite guest house has a banquet hail which can accommodate about 1000 delegates, a ball room, a pink room, a big dining hall, several residential bedrooms and exclusive drawing-rooms. Hyderabad House stands out as one of the most marvellous pieces of architecture, reminding every passerby of Mir Osman Au Khan and Hyderabad.
