All about Aziz Bagh

 

 Before and during the Aziz Bagh construction, the house opposite Aziz Bagh was the temporary residence of Nawab Aziz Jung. This temporary house was later bought by The Nizam's Ustad (teacher) Ahmed Jalili and named it 'Jalil Manzil'.

 

Ahmed Abdul Aziz, Khan Bahadur Shams-Ul-Ulaima Nawab Aziz Jung Villa, constructed Aziz Bagh in 1899 with the income from sales of books written by him. During his lifetime Aziz Jung wrote several books, all on various different topics.

 

The Aziz-ul-Akhbaar (news paper) was published by Nawab Aziz Jung from Aziz Bagh. Mr. Hassan Makki was the transcriber of the newspaper.

 

As a famous writer describes, "The house of Aziz Jung has many titles to fame: famous for its modality, famous for its learning, famous for its elegant taste, special culture, and administrative achievements. In short from points of principles and rules of live the house is an institution unto itself.

 

A remarkable feature of this house is that the offshoots of the family tree are all men and women of integrity endowed with organizing ability, all well placed on the rung of life. The Aziz Bagh named after Aziz Jung is a miniature colony, fringed on all sides by a tribe of near kith and kin."

 

Nawab Aziz Jung developed the Noorkhan Bazaar Sultanpura neighborhood.

 

The Road in front of Aziz Bagh is officially named as Aziz Jung Road, recorded in the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad Deccan.

 

The worst flood of Hyderabad Deccan in the year 1908 was no match for the strong and sturdy construction of Aziz Bagh, which was only eleven years old at the time. Now 100 years later the house of Nawab Aziz Jung is Masha-Allah still strong and in the same original condition.
