The Hazarduari Palace, or the palace built with thousand doors is one of the major tourist attractions of Murshidabad. The palace was once the site for holding the ‘Durbar’ or meetings of the Nawabs.

This three-storey palace was built by Duncan McLeod 1837 for Nawab Najim Humaun Jah. The palace built in the European architectural style over an area of 41 acres, features thousands of doors, 114 rooms and 8 galleries.

The palace has now been transferred into a museum, showcasing a collection of paintings and portraits of Nawabs, armoury, various works of ivory of China and many other valuables.

Swords used by Siraj-ud-Daulla and his grandfather, Nawab Alivardi Khan are also displayed in the museum. Some other attractions are vintage cars, used by Nawabs and their families. Visitors are not allowed in the library of the palace, unless special permission is obtained.

A small mosque, ‘Madina,’ has been built between the palace and the Imambara, featuring tiled verandas. Most of the tourist attractions like Wasef Manzil, Dakshin Darwaza, Tripolia gate, Gharighar, Immambara and Bachchawali Cannon are located near the palace.  

Timing: 9:00 am to 05:00 pm. The museum at Hazarduari Palace remains closed on Fridays
