Among the many palaces that were built by the erstwhile zamindars (super rich land lords) of Bengal during 1800 and 1880, the Marble Palace is certainly the most outstanding. Built in 1835 by Raja Rajendra Mullick, this edifice, in the north Kolkata is worth a visit. Besides a vast and rare collections of paintings, sculptures and furniture, a single piece rose wood bust of Queen Victoria makes it a connoisseurs delight.
The large garden around the palace also houses a personal zoo. You may wonder what it was really like during the times of Raja Rajendra Mullick, when you step into the music and dance hall with awesome chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The direct descendants of Rajendra Mullick still live on a part of the palace, which is out of bounds for tourists.
