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.

"True Palace of a Real Nawab"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Nov 3, 2014
To know the history of Nawab's life, you must have to come here. Nawab Siraj Ud Daula was the last free Nawab of our Country, after that the East India company is the ruling authority. This place gives the imagery of later period. Here all the belonging and used things of them are on exhibition. You can see a 7 long armoury to 3 knife.
