This is the palace of the erstwhile rulers of Murshidabad on the banks of Bhagirathi River. It has now been converted to a museum and houses all the properties, weapons, art and furniture of the royal family. The palace is located in a lavish ground and houses a big mosque, clock tower, etc.

Never imagined would get to see such awe-inspiring collections from the Nawabs like priceless paintings, furniture, antiques and so on! Equally attention-grabbing are Nizamat Imambara, Murshidabad Clock Tower, Madina Mosque, Chawk Masjid, Bacchawali Tope, the Shia Complex, Wasif Manzil!
