There is a palace made of marble which is still inhabited but you can make arrangements to get a 'tour'.The place is lovely old building with an eclectic collection of paintings,

Had heard about it spoken with great awe. Reached it to be told permit required. Gate watchman allowed us in after persuasion. This incredible building needs a total revamp so that its awesome works of art, described so well by others, can be brought out for the enjoyment of the discerning public. However, one wonders if the owners have allowed... More

A huge place in the heart of the city. Just cant believe once you reach there - it might be so huge ! Guard at entry may ask for tip to grant you entry and parking. Many time you find the royals (owners)in side and ready to guide you about the museum. Utmost rare collection of many original paintings, marble... More

The Marble palace is a beautiful building. To get in you must either book through the tourist authority or bribe the guards to let you in. Once you're in you must pay a 'guide' to look inside the building. You can't take photos. Though you could probably bribe someone for that too. A beautiful place that is pretty much ignored... More

We were happy to see the palace but very sad to see the conditions. This is not a curated experience at all. The "guide" was a 20 year old insolent man who speaks Bengali only. Never smiled and rushed us through every room sometimes not even turning on the lights. Our tour guide does not like taking guests to this... More

The marble palace is symbolic of Calcutta. This was once a spectacular Palace but it has not been maintained or cleaned. It's just like Calcutta elegance turned to shabiness, beauty turned to ruin and yet .... there is still enough of the old magic to make this a worthwhile visit..

Walking to this place, down narrow alleys of a working street, you never can prepare yourself for such a massive property and its grandeur to open up out of nowhere. Supposedly you typically require a ticket or permit of some sort, but a modest sum paid to one of the guards allows you entry under their watch (they keep their... More

Marble Palace is located in a very nondescript part of Burrabazar area. Its like an oasis in a not so impressive environment where one has to jostle for space in the narrow lanes lined with shops and old buildings. Once you enter the heritage building a different world greets you. A large pond and a temple on the right side... More

Reaching the place is a bit difficult due to narrow lanes and market. Less crowded on Sunday. The palace belongs to "Zamindar" king of small state. You have to tip the guards to enter and park your vehicle. But inside there is a very big collection of Marble statues, paintings and other old things. Definitely worth a visit. Also has... More

Only when you visit Marble Palace you can sense the grandeur that was Bengal 100 years back. Be it the colossal wooden statue of Queen Victoria or the mammoth dance hall with gigantic Belgian mirrors covering the whole wall or the Painting room with exquisite painting of a woman whose eyes follow you wherever you move in the room -...
