Overview

A historic city on the banks of River Bhagirathi, a tributary of River Ganges, Murshidabad is an interesting tourist destination in West Bengal. From the Nawabs of the pre-British era to the Lords from England, Murshidabad has seen history from its core. This small tourist haven in West Bengal serves as a place that manages to combine the beauty of the past with the beliefs of the present. A town that rose in prominence during the rule of Bengal Subah under Alivardi Khan and Murshid Quli Khan, Murshidabad and its adjacent town of Cossimbazar continued to play a significant role during the early years of British rule in Bengal. Siraj-ud-Daullah, the last sovereign ruler of Murshidabad aka Bengal, was defeated in Plassey, marking the beginning of the British rule in India. Today Murshidabad has lost its place of glory but continues to draw people with its colorful past and architectural splendor. It is among the most popular weekend getaways in the state.

The magnificent Hazarduari Palace or the Palace with 1000 doors is the best among the structures that one comes across here. This palace is accompanied by several small and big buildings strewn across a huge area.

  • 17 km from Murshidabad is another interesting destination, Cossimbazar. The town rose in prominence when the European trading companies like the British, French, and the Dutch built their factories here. A flourishing river port, it allowed trade to flourish here.

 On the northern side of the palace lies The Nizamat Imambara, built in 1847 AD by Nawab Nazim Mansoor Ali Khan Feradun Jah, son of Humayun Jah. The stunning mosque was built after the Imambara built by Siraj-ud-Doula got burnt down in a fire. The mosque complex is known to be the biggest in Bengal, and maybe even India

 This Palace was built by Nawab Wasif Ali Mirza Khan, Nawab of Murshidabad. Located at the south end of Hazarduari Palace, it is touted as the 'new palace' because it was built much later.

The location of Nawab Bahadur'S Institution is Hazarduari, Murshidabad. 26 dedicated and professional teachers ensure that the children get the maximum out of their education in this State Board school. In 1825, Nawab Bahadur'S Institution was launched. Bengali is the primary medium of instruction for this school with Urdu and English as a secondary medium. and the student-teacher ratio is 33:1. The school tries to provide the best learning environment.

Katra Masjid (also known as Katra Mosque) is a mosque and the tomb of Nawab Murshid Quli Khan built between 1723 and 1724. It is located on the northeastern side of the city of Murshidabad, in the Indian state of West Bengal.

He followed the classic Greek (Doric) style. It is believed that the palace owes its name to the presence of more than a thousand real and false doors and vast corridors in it. It was built 72 years after the battle of Plassey. The work started in 1829 and culminated in 1837. Today, it houses a museum, the palace, and various artifacts used by the Nawabs including the silver throne, ivory sofa, and palanquins, paintings, weapons, and armory. It is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and the central government. Imambara - This faces the Hazarduari Palace. It is believed that it is one of the biggest Imambaras in India. Before the present structure, there existed a wooden Imambara constructed by Nawab Siraj-ud-Daulah. The white building with its architectural splendor inspires awe.

It is stated that it houses a replica of Hazrat Muhammad's tomb at Madina. The colorful tiled verandah looks beautiful. Near this, one can see the Bacchawali Tope, which was recovered from Bhagirathi during the reign of Nawab Humayun Jah. It required 18 kgs of gunpowder and it is said that the sound that it made when it was fired was so terrible that pregnant women suffered miscarriages. This is why the name - Bacchawali Tope. Motijheel - This crescent-shaped huge lake was dug up right in front of the magnificent three-story palace, built by Nawab Nawajes Mohammad Khan for his wife Ghaseti Begum. The palace (it does not exist anymore) was known for the large variety of marbles and flower plants. People here say that the treasures of the Nawab were buried in a room here. An Englishmen who tried to unearth the wealth met with a fatal end. It is believed that wealth is protected by some supernatural force. It is stated that the Nawab Siraj-ud-Daulah was jealous of the grandeur of Motijheel and he constructed ˜Hirajheel" which eventually drowned in the Ganga. Mosque - This mosque houses the tomb of Murshid Kuli Khan, the founder of Murshidabad. The mosque was constructed between 1723-1724 and the Nawab had expressed his desire to be buried here.

There are two cannons here which people say were gifted by Robert Clive to Mir Jafar. The Stable - It was built during the period of Murshid Kuli Khan for keeping Arabian horses, camels, and elephants. All that remains of this huge stable today are just high walls and a gate. This area has become a popular market place. Wasif Manzil - The Nawab Bahadur of Murshidabad, Sir Syud Wasif Ali Meerza constructed this new palace. This is located in the south of the Hazarduari Palace. It boasted of beautiful gardens and artificial hillocks and hence, it was known as a ˜landscape garden".
