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 -...

This has been and has the potential to be an absolutely magnificent venue. But and a big but is the terrible state that it is in. Filth and ingrained dust cover everything. There are some magnificent pieces of artwork and furnishings but the lack of care overrides everything. We were asked to take off our shoes before entering and when... More

An absolute must, this incredible Palace is still home to the owners. this Palace showcases how the Landowners of Bengal lived once upon a time. while this is probably the grandest in Calcutta, there are many more similar palaces and mansions in Calcutta. The exquisite grandeur in which the Indians lived is apparent in the halls of this palace. The... More

The Marble Palace is not really a part of the usual tourist traps but if you want to experience a slice of the city's babu culture, this place is a must visit. Located just a lane away from the Jorashanko Thakur Bari, just the first view of this building's impressive facade will stun you. The Marble Palace has a hotchpotch... More

On entering you think this is just full of tacky crap but then you realise there are items worth a fortune mixed with tacky crap so you go round again.
