People who have a taste for art and culture will enjoy Marble Palace, Calcutta. Indian visitors will enjoy more than western visitors as because almost everything is western collection ( artifacts & statues ). There is a good taste of history in here. To end, this is a very beautiful place.

Quite a beautiful place. But not maintained as well as it should be. Photography not allowed for some strange reason.

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.
