Me and two of friends visited the much coveted Marble Palace on the Christmas Day in the afternoon. The palace is indeed wonderful with its exemplary architecture. But the administrative personnel present in the palace ground was very rude and indecent. First of all we were asked to show Government Passes to enter, and when I asked for an explanation he showed me a torn out self made board stating that tourists need passes to visit. Then he said that we can enter, but on our exit we need to pay 200 bucks. As soon as we entered, some other people in khaki uniform impeded us to roam further, even we were not allowed to go near the aviary. But, the locals were having real good fun on the ground. We were treated very badly as our cameras were not in our bag, but we didn't click any pictures. Then totally frustrated and irritated we decided to leave. On the exit that guy asked for his 200 bucks, and when we demanded receipt he made us cognizant that no receipt system is there. We didn't pay any and we left. West Bengal Tourism should consider how to maintain this historical place. They should replace these disgusting administrative people who do not know how to behave properly with tourists.
