Not many calcacian will know about this place. You need to catch a metro and get down at Ram Mandir & walk for about 5 to 6 mins. Mondays will be closed. You will also need permit from Stephen House, Dalhousie to entire this place. Consists of lots of paintings and statues, a must visit for people who love art

I went there on recommendation from my mother. Its a must must visit for all Kolkata locals and foreigners. The greek architecture and antiques, birds (they looked very unhealthy. New cages should be brought for them), fountains, paintings, lion statue, buddha statue and sitting benches add a serene and beautiful experience offering us insight into the Maharaja's collection and lifestyle...

Off the beaten track and dilapidated but very interesting . I went with a guide and a friend who lives in Calcutta. My friend did not know of its existence and was as equally as pleased as I was to be able to imagine the glory of what must have been..
