Iconic Building in Hyderabad Losing Its Glory To Rust

It is rightly said that one should want to know the legacy and history of a place by visiting its iconic buildings which reveal more about the ways of the city. Tucked away amidst pleasant locales of Public Gardens, very close to the State Assembly is the beautiful 'Iron Bungalow', which would enchant city's visitors with major lung space known as 'Bagh-e-Aam.' But, alas! 


On the golden jubilee of her ascension to the throne in 1887, Iron Bungalow, the architectural grandstand, was gifted by Queen Victoria to Nizam VI Mir Mahboob Ali Khan. Built-in 1846 by the then Nizam of Hyderabad Bagh-e-Aam is the oldest park in the city and after almost 40 years the Iron Bungalow was established. This bungalow now houses the Telangana state horticulture department. The entire bungalow is made up of galvanized iron, pillars, the roof, and sidewalls. Though with luster gone long back, the designs and artwork are also made up of iron, which still holds the charm. And a steel mesh has been added to its frame inside and a wooden partition made to create more rooms. 


The convener of the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, Anuradha Reddy recalls the history and says that since the time of Nizam VI, the bungalow is one of the important works which remains intact. Now this heritage structure, however, is totally neglected by the state.


She urges the government to preserve the centuries-old structure and transform it into a museum, where people can recall the gift and history from the Queen of England. 


With no proper maintenance, the structure is closed for months. The iron bungalow is covered in rust and at the side, backs were turned into a storage area. 


Though hundreds of visitors visit the Public Garden daily, they cannot enter the grandstand. 


According to heritage conservationist, Mohammed Habeebuddin, it is now difficult to recognize the building's original features and a portion of the structure is in rust due to lack of maintenance and neglect. He takes a jibe at the government by saying it seems the state government is waiting for the building to crumble.
