The vast, Georgian-style Hazarduari Palace, whose great Neoclassical façade rises in spectacular fashion from the banks of the Bhagirathi River in Murshidabad, was built by the Scottish architect, Duncan Macleod, for the local Nawab in 1837. Displayed in some of its 114 rooms is an extensive collection of paintings, porcelain, weapons, costumes, palanquins, Persian manuscripts and votive objects – all evocative of the region’s great wealth in the 19th century.
