Tourism, Murshidabad

Hazarduari Palace or the palace with a thousand doors is the chief tourist attraction of Murshidabad. This three-storey palace was built in 1837 by Duncan McLeod for the Nawab Najim Humaun Jah, descendent of Mir Zafar. It has thousand doors (among which only 900 are real) and 114 rooms and 8 galleries, built in  European architectural style. The total area of Hazarduari Palace is 41 acres. It is now a museum.


MOTIJHEEL, The cradle of British Rule in India, stands witness to a remarkable turing point in Indian history. A 350 acre oxbow lake formed out of an abndoned bed of river Bhagirathi, the MOTIJHEEL, derived its name from extensive pearl cultivation during the Nawabi period. The Jheel was famous for raising golden tinted pearls extracted from Unino Margaritifera species.


Out of the black marble stones brought from the ruins of Gaur, Nawazesh Ahmed Khan built the Sangidalan or the stone palace for his wife Ghaseti Begum, the eldest daughter of Nawab Nazim Ali Verdi Khan.
