Hyderabad: Errum Manzil is now well and truly a hot potato in the political circles of Hyderabad with KCR’s grand ambitions of constructing a spanking new edifice in its place being met with increasing opposition by an army of conservationists, descendants of the original builder and his political rivals.
Chapter VI of the book, (with a total of 12 chapters), titled ‘The Great Nobles: Fakhr ul Mulk Bahadur’ is specific in its mention of the famed palace which is now the bone of contention.
It says: ‘When Nawab Ghazi Jung (son of Fakhr ul Mulk-II) returned from England in 1900, he found the family established a new palace, Iram Munzil, which Fakhr ul Mulk had built on a hilltop several miles further out.
The first he knew of it was when the carriage bringing him from the station turned in the “wrong” direction.
The story goes that Fakhr ul Mulk who had ‘a habit of building places’ had a wager with Sir Vicar ul Umra (of the Paigah family) as to who would build the higher palace.
