The term hacienda in Spanish refers to a big and pivotal house in a large estate. Once in Spain, having a hacienda of your own catapulted you to a higher pedestal. It's because life in colonial times revolved around the haciendas, which were the economic, political and social centre of every human habitation - from small towns to large cities. They were truly a mark of elevated status. Among Indian cities, Hyderabad has a rich heritage which is unrivalled. During the princely rule of Nizams, Hyderabad State had emerged as the richest and the senior-most salute state, among the Indian imperial states. Now adding to its sublime history is the contemporary version of haciendas - stately villas in a salubrious setting. Welcome to an experience of a hacienda life which flourished in Spain for hundreds of years.
