Badshahi Ashur Khana, Hyderabad

About Badshahi Ashur Khana Information-Hyderabad

About a hundred metres away from the Naya Pul bridge, opposite to the Madina building, there is a mourning house of the Qutub Shahis called as Badshahi Ashur Khana. It was built by Muhammad Quli Qutb, the fifth Qutb Shahi king. This complex houses one of the fine works of the Shahi kings.

In early 17th century, the walls of this complex were decorated with multi-coloured tiles.

The Badshahi Ashur Khana has the name of its builder in the central position and on the western wall. The interior was decorated with exquisite enamel tile work during the reign of Sultan Muhammad. During the reign of Sultan Abdullah Qutb Shah the use of standards (alams) during Moharrum, the Muslim month of mourning, was introduced. Later, during the same time, the Ashur Khana was redecorated.

These walls stand as one of the superb arts of the Shahi era you can see in Hyderabad. These walls have a perfect blend of middle-eastern hues, typical Indian colours and the Islamic art. The panels on the west wall are the liveliest with flaming alam containing Arabic script written in the round.
