loved atmosphere, hated man on gate. I felt like Miss Haversham in this fabulous, spice scented,out of a film set place. Beware of man at gate, he charges an enormous entry fee, when it is actually free!

The Marble Palace isn't always on the list of a first time visitor to Kolkata but make sure it is on yours! A grand mansion that houses a collection of all sorts of art works, antiques, birds from all over the world, its dark, its dusty, but its a fantastic and jaw-dropping sight to see. View some old classical European... More

A jewel in the middle of the city. Photos are prohibited. Beautiful collection of paintings and statues with a lot of nudes which is very unusual in India. The palace is still inhabited by the family
