I took my team to the famed Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad for a posh six course lunch. Our cab pulled onto the grounds after the ~1 hour ride from HITEC City. We were delighted to see this horse drawn carriage roll pass. Alas, it wasn't for us and I was told later that it costs 12000 rupees (>$200) to take this mode of transportation from the gatehouse to the palace.
We piled into the free golf cart that drove us to the entrance. It had the added benefit of moving fast enough to generate a cooling breeze to break the oppressive heat (>100 °F).
The dining room was tastefully decorated with small chandeliers and high ceilings.
I managed to devour all of the desserts except for a smidge of the beetroot. It was just too unusual of a flavor for dessert.
We took one last look out across the city drawing a sightline over one of the cannons.
