Marble Palace Kolkata, Kolkata Reviews
Worth to see! Even if the place is quite old and not properly maintained it gives you the idea of how a noble European house must have looked back in the 1700-1800. I enjoy art but have never been able to find in Europe a noble house still with its entire collections of artworks and furniture. It is nice to find one in India owned from an Indian family, it gives you the idea of the wealth of the family and its rich taste since almost all the artworks comes from Europe.
Beautiful place, beautiful British architecture, India's first private zoo and the palace having old antique paintings and models which are collected from every corner of the world by the king. Simply you will think that how they are maintaining these precious things privately...no tickets are required, only need a photo identity card, guides are there and you have to give a tip after the visit (as you wish)....polite behaviour of each and every associates
Nice place to visit with family & friends. They provide guide to see the palace, photography sticky prohibited. Their are gardens and little zoo 2. Must visit to see the heritage of Kolkata. No parking available, no entry fee. Need a ID proof. Just give tips to guide and if u manage the gate keeper they provide u the parking place 😜
The most beautiful place I visited in Calcutta with excellent art and pieces of furniture collected by the owner(the family still lives there). In the middle of a narrow street, the majesty of it all hits you. A must visit!!
Words can't describe this place if anyone want to feel the ambience of this place just go and visit those sculptures , design of marvel works in floors, paintings and the India's first private zoo. It is truly marvellous. (Photography is prohibited inside the premises)
