Photograph of the Jahannuma Palace, Hyderabad, taken by Deen Dayal in the 1880s, from the Curzon Collection: 'Views of HH the Nizam's Dominions, Hyderabad, Deccan, 1892'. The Jahannuma (View of the World) Palace is situated about a mile and a half outside the city of Hyderabad. It was one of the residencies of Nawab Sham-ul-Umara (1780-1863), a nobleman of the court of the Nizams of Hyderabad, otherwise known by his title 'Amir Kabir'. He was an outstanding geometrician and survived three generations of Nizams as 'Commander of the household troops'. The gardens and grounds were laid out by the Nawab in 1822-3. In the rear of the building there was a large menagerie of wild animals.
