Get a peek in yesteryears of Indian royalty here. Try and visit Marble place if you have 2-3 hours to spare. Decent variety and lots of marble (ofcourse!).

The Marble Palace ids the most well know of the zmindari houses of Kolkata and has a fabulous collection of art and artefacts. Worth a visit, but you will be disappointed by the fact that there is no catalogue, the exhibits could have been better presented and displayed and the lif-style of the nobility does not come out as well...

If you ever seen palaces in Europe, don't go, it's a waste of time. In tourist office they told me, that with permission it's for free, not true! You need a guide, and for example i've got one, who didn't speak too much english, and even when he knew the word, i understand maybe half! Nice sculpture, but overall palace... More

Not surprisingly this house is stuffed to the rafters with (mostly) European naturalistic sculptures. There are other works of art as well, but sculpture dominates. It is a shame about the no-camera policy. Well worth a visit if you want to see how Indian princes lived before Ferraris.

Its a very old palace but lost in the pages of history, guess very few people in Kolkata may have visited the palace...There isnt much to see in there such as well and neither its too well maintained a place. If anyone is out to see some heritage sites in Kolkata then you can pick up this one, trust me... More

Art collection is vast. A nice spot to retreat from the streets. But beware of the tour guides the tip is expected and they will try for 500+rupee. We got them down to two hundred. Was unexpected but do haggle. Guard out the front will expect a small tip as well. Try and get a tour guide that can speak... More

A beautiful house and collection, however, I was disappointed that you were not able to take photos, even of the gardens and the exterior of the house. The interior could have done with better upkeep and the guides were actually quite rude and ignorant. Perhaps they should charge a higher entrance fee, especially for tourists, and put the income to... More
