Drawing room of King Kothi Palace,
The former princely state of Hyderabad abounds in palaces richly adorned and caparisoned. Fine furnishing and objects of art reflect the lifestyle of a bygone era.
As the official photographer to H.E.H. the Nizam, Lala Deen Dayal had the opportunity to photograph palace scenes; his superbly composed interiors cover the vista from floor to ceiling. Without any extra lighting facilities, the photographs of palace interiors are remarkable for their subtle light and shade and pin-point sharpness.
