dc.descriptionGujarati vaishyas were among the mercantile communities that have been resident in Golconda and Hyderabad since the Qutb Shahis. Among them was the Bhagwandas family to whom this pavilion belongs. Located in Karwan, raised on a high platform, the double-storied pavilion in mellowed teak is one of the surviving examples of a genre of architecture. The only other palace having a wooden pavilion in the city, Malwala Palace, which was pulled down on 21 August 2000. The Bhagwandas pavilion built around 1800 resembles Tipu's palace in toto with open arcades all around and jharokas (balconies) overlooking the arcaded verandahs. The arches are essentially cusped. The fluted wooden columns, the canopies and the window projections are in the later Mughal and Gujarati styles. The intimacy of scale, the perfection of wooden carvings of floral patterns and birds that dot every square inch of the structure and the fine proportions elevate the palace to a rare architectural specimen.en_US
