Inside it is a vast collection of paintings, huge mirrors, statues etc. There are some exotic birds inside as well. However for some reason they don't allow you to take any pictures. The rooms inside the... More

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..

The Marble Palace was built in 1835 by Raja Rajendra Mullick, a wealthy Bengali merchant with a passion for collecting works of art. The house continues to be a residence for his descendants, and the current occupants are the family of Raja Rajendra Mullick Bahadur. When you enter the tiny Muktaram Babu Street to would not imagine that you would... More

it is a privately owned massive property very near Mahajati Sadan North Kolkata worth every minute you spend inside. There is no entrance fees but it is compulsory to take one of their guides around the property and gorging on the artifacts exhibited. They have a mini zoo inside with exotic birds and pegions and a famous black buck. When... More

The Palace known as Mullick Bari (Raja Rajendra Mullick, a rich Merchant). It's a awesome palace for heritage marble structures,small zoo,the grand piano, paintings, sculptures,artefacts,statues,furniture etc. Unfortunately photography not allowed. A must visit palace, it's located in the middle of chaotic North Calcutta near by Mahatma Gandhi Road Metro Station.

What an odd place. It's like visiting an old eccentric relative who now lives in genteel poverty amongst a mish-mash of treasures collected over a lifetime: antiques, chandeliers, bird cages, rolled carpets, sculptures and dilapidated paintings in Victorian, Neoclassical, traditional Bengali and Chinese style. I wouldn't have missed it for the world - utterly fascinating. I started to reflect on... More

This is a must see in a visit to Kolkata. Its within walking distance from the MG Road metro station. Once you come up, take the 2nd left lane keeping the Mahajati Sadan on your right. You need a permit from the tourist office in BBD Bagh to enter. However, you can just turn up at the place and tip... More

Well worth a visit. The building is impressive both inside and out. Relax in the gardens afterwards. Afterwards you can do a ride on a horse drawn carriage if you want.

I have to say that it was a few years back that I visited this palace and was blown away by the incredible art - sculptures, paintings,artefacts,in fact anything opulent seemed to have made it's way here. Dusty and dimly lit place does take the shine of what could be a brilliant collection shown in all its glory, however the... More
