 DAY 2: FULL DAY SIGHTSEEING

After a nice breakfast, you can move to your tour locations. Firstly visit Hazarduari Palace or the Palace of a Thousand Doors –

It was built during the reign of Nawab Nazim Humayun Jah (1824-1838 AD) by the famous architect McLeod Duncan. 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.

Medina Mosque - This small mosque is situated between the Hazarduari Palace and the Imambara. It is said that Nawab Siraj-ud-Daulah had brought mud from Karbala on his head and placed them at Medina. 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. The Nawab died in 1725. It was also his wish that a market is established in the vicinity of this mosque. The word ˜Katra" means the market and hence the name. This single-aisle mosque stands on a high platform within a square courtyard and was originally surrounded by five domes. ASI maintains this mosque.

Katgola Garden - Lachmi Prasad is credited to be the founder of this garden that houses a beautiful palace. One can see valuable paintings, furniture, and mirrors inside the palace. There is a beautiful temple here which is dedicated to Paresh Nath.

Jahankosha Canon - Jahankosha canon is the biggest cannon at the armory or the Topekhana, which is located at the south-eastern corner of Katra mosque. It means 'conqueror of the universe'. It is said to be 12 feet long, 3 feet wide and the circumference of its mouth is more than one feet. It was made by blacksmith Janardhan Karmakar of Dhaka in 1637.

Nashipur Rajbati - The palace was constructed by King Kirtichand Bahadur in the late 19th century. Within the palace compound two temples, that of Ramachandra and Lakshmi-Narayana were built and they are worth a watch. 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". Many members of the Nizamut family lived in this palace.

Khosh Bagh - This garden is situated on the opposite bank of the river Bhagirathi. Tourists can cross the river in trawlers and visit this garden. Nawab Ali Vardi Khan, Ali Vardi's mother, Nawab Siraj-ud-Daulah and his wife Lutfannesha and other members of the Nawab family are buried here. After the death of Siraj-ud-Daulah, Lutfannesha was made to take care of the cemetery. She was given a monthly allowance of Rs 1,000 and she spent almost the entire revenue for its upkeep. Old-timers say that a wide variety of beautiful flowers graced the garden. Overnight stay at Hotel.

Tour reviews

Mr. Partha Karmakar

Murshidabad is a place to visits with the whole family. It is a historical place which is remembers us for Nawab Sirajdoulla and Plassey war. 1000 doors that fool u around with no entrance/exit for few. However I enjoyed very well with family members. Best time to visit from Sep to Feb. Nice weekend destination near by Kolkata.

Mr. Akash Awarwal

Hazarduari Palace is located in Lalbag Town in West Bengal. This is a British era building with all its grandeur. The display inside the museum is very good with weapons, paintings, etc. It is worth visiting and one of the best in India. A lot of local guides are available to get all the details of the City. It is worth a visit to Khosbag nearby where Shiraj-ud-doula was buried. The river needs to be crossed for the same. Obviously, stay at Roopkatha Guesthouse. Nice ambiance with Historical touch.

Ms. Rajashree Chakraborty

Murshidabad was the capital of Bengal during Muslim rule. Hence with the help of English Architects & British Rulers a large no. of architectural edifices were built by the Muslim Rulers as well as their non-Muslim Ministers/ Advisers during the time. Hazarduari, the grand palace built by the Britishers for the then Nawab Najim, was one of the best palaces in Bengal. It is located on the banks of the Ganges love looking the grandees Imambada is a place worth visiting. Apart from this Museum, there are other sites around the city worth visiting. Nice place to get in touch with History.
