This city later​​ turned ​out ​to be called by the name ​of ​Hyderabad.

The royal King Kothi Palace is ​an excellent piece of example of inspiration ​and influence of European Architecture. It was built by Kamal Khan and named it with the sign of “K K”. Later,​it was sold to Nizam when he expressed his desire for the palace. Nizam felt it to be a pride to have those abbreviations, so he passed a ferman and changed “ K K” to King Kothi which means Kings Mansion. Thus the name King Kothi was brought into existence.​
