brilliant place to visit, a must do, but very confusing with regards to their payment strategy. Do we pay the guard on the door or the guide?! We were told off by the guard because we paid the guide but there was no pricing structure and therefore gave what we thought was adequate. Please make it easy on visitors. It... More

Must visit for visitors to Kolkata to get a feel of the opulence that erstwhile rulers used to live in. Great collection of art & exotic Birds.

A sumptuous palace in a run down area of the city full of very real artistic treasures with a beautiful garden. The emphasis is on European painting and Chinese porcelain. The very cultivated owner is friendly and he admitted to a passion for preserving his family home. The downside? Much of the exhibits and structure are in need of restoration.... More

This majestic palace was built by Raja Rajendra Mallick, a wealthy bengali marchent, in the year 1835. The walls and floors of the building is made of marble, hence the name 'marble palace ' came. The architecture of the building is based on 'Neo- Classical ' concept. A good amount of collections of British period attract visitor's attention. There is... More

You feel like you are walking back in time. Very few tourists go here. You have to know someone who knows what they are doing. The only problem is that you have to use one of the on site guides, and they have poor english, are rather robotic, and scalp you pretty rough for tips.

My experience was not good from the word go. The approach road is small, narrow and difficult to maneuver a car. At the entrance we were asked whether we got permission from some office!!! Later i learnt that this is a way of making money. He asked us to pay some money to him and to the guides. We got... More

This museum contains an eclectic collection of paintings from Europe and ceramics from the Far East (Japan and China). They are often not particularly well displayed but are, nevertheless, interesting. There are a great variety of different marbles used in the construction of the building. There is a small aviary with very noisy parakeets! You are not allowed to take... More
