No-one should visit Hyderabad without reading William Dalrymple’s ‘White Mughals’. The book relates the moving story of the marriage between a young Hyderabadi noblewoman, Khair un-Nissa, and the East India Company’s most senior British official in the city, James Kirkpatrick. Visit the once sumptuous mansion James built for his bride, re-created in miniature in the rear garden for the ladies of the household, who couldn’t see the façade as they were in strict purdah.
