“Purani Haveli” is located to the south east of Afzal Gunj Bridge close to Dewandevdi in Hyderabad. This architectural monument symbolizes the incorporation of 18th century European facades as well as traditional Indian courtyards. “Purani Haveli” was formerly intended to serve as the house of Mir Momen, the Peshwa of Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah in the late 16th century.

You may observe two vast courtyards surrounded by rooms and deep balconies with crescent European arches, these were constructed during the possession of the Asaf Jahis. Certain rooms retain their tiled walls and mosaic flooring unimpaired, and their varieties of hues are reminiscent of the magnificent past.

The other interesting feature associated with “Purani Haveli” is that one can find Nizam’s museum at this place. It is open for visitors between 10:30 am and 5 pm except on Fridays and still stands as centre of attraction of Hyderabad apart from other monuments like Charminar, Falaknuma.
