As part of the Security measures, personnel is worried about the presence of snakes at Golconda Fort and the Taj Falaknuma Hotel, both of which are located amidst dense thickets. The hilly terrains around the heritage areas are home to a variety of snakes and reptiles, which are often spotted by locals.

Taj hotels acquired Falaknuma Palace in November 2010, making it one of the recent acquisition. They converted the Palace into a modern-day luxury hotel. Falaknuma Palace wasn’t owned by the king but rather by the Prime Minister. Viqar-ul-Umra, the Prime Minister of Hyderabad, used the palace as his private residence until the palace was handed over to the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad around 1897-1898. His monogram is on the furniture, walls, and ceiling of the palace.

Officials of the special protection group who visited the Taj Falaknuma enquired about the presence of snakes in the vicinity of the hotel, which is located on a 36-acre piece of land surrounded by dense vegetation. Not wanting to take any chances, they got two snake charmers on the payroll. So far, the hotel doesn’t have any incidents regarding snake.

The police have also asked the Nehru Zoological Park and the forest department to post a few snake-catchers at the Golconda Fort, where the Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will host a dinner for the delegates. Pythons and other snakes have been caught there several times. Hope this is not symbolic in anyway as India was earlier considered land of Snake charmers (ridiculously so).
