One of the city's oldest educational institutions has a reason to celebrate as it finally completes 100 years since its construction on the city's famous River Musi banks. The Government City, which looks more like a heritage structure and is a grade II structure, stands tall and provides education to Intermediates and Undergrads.
The college was constructed by Chief Engineer Nawab Khan Bahadur Mirza Akbar Baig, a prolific architect of the Nizam Era, and a close friend Mir Osman Ali Khan, The founder of the college. The architect built this 100-year-old structure on 6-acre land with an Indo-Saracenic architectural style. The presence of the River Musi quite close to this college has significantly influenced the materials used for its construction, especially since the ground floor is made up of stone, and the rest of the building is made up of lime or mortar.
The building consists of 64 rooms, including a gallery, seminar rooms, and an extensive library. The furniture that the entire building has is quite a rare sight to see in an educational institution and is still in top condition. However, some parts of the building need urgent repairing and reconstruction works not to deteriorate the entire structure.
