  • This Palace was built at the beginning of the 20th century. Kumar Gopal Lal Roy was the principal and this man had earned his fortune trading in jewelry. The building is 72 m wide and has two floors. Starting from 1984 the building functioned as a higher court, starting from 1995 it fell under the Ministry of archaeology and ten years later it is decorated as a museum. The gardens surrounding the building are maintained by 24 gardeners, however, cleaning up waste residue does not belong to their task. Bit of a shame.

  • The Palace is impressive with its entrance stairway, the central tower and two octagonal corner. It was built in the early 20th century for a local Maharaja, then was used as a public building and now contains the Rangpur Museum with artifacts from the tenth century terracotta, Sanskrit and Arabic manuscripts and Hindu stone sculptures. Interesting to visit.

  • The structure is pretty but there isn't much to see outside except a lovely garden. Inside, there is a small but impressive museum which holds objects dating as far as 6th-7th century AD. Some objects...  more »

  • An ancient but well maintained beautiful palace of Rangpur. Best place to visit in the northern part of Bangladesh. The surrounding area is also mind blowing. Any one can visit the palace with family and friends for the whole day. While traveling from Dhaka I got of the bus at "Modern More". Local transport is always available from there to Tajhat Palace. The natural of the Lotus pond on the south eastern side is also equally beautiful. The natural beauty and the beautiful palace is a must watch spot for any tourist.
  • Still it is in very good shape. One of the bests tourist attraction of Rangpur. Once it was used for Divisional Bench of High Court Division. As lawyer, I see that as court house in that sense. Good visit there, the pond and big beautiful flower garden is well maintained.
  • Beautiful and historical architecture. Loved the place. Close to the centre of Rangpur city.
  • ঐতিহাসিক দর্শনীয় স্থান... বর্তমানে জাদুকর ও পিকনিক স্পট। Tajhat Palace, Tajhat Rajbari, is a historic palace of Bangladesh, located in Tajhat, Rangpur. This palace now holds the Rangpur museum. Tajhat Palace is situated three km. south-east of the city of Rangpur, on the outskirts of town. Structure The palace, with about 76 metres frontage, rises two storeys and faces east. An imposing broad staircase in the centre, paved with imported white marble, leads directly above the portico to the upper storey. The palace is crowned by a ribbed conical dome in the centre of the roof with a tall octagonal neck, partly supported on a series of slender semi-Corinthian columns. The balustrade on either side of the imposing staircase was originally embellished with various sculptures of classical Roman figures in Italian marble, but now these are missing. There are two semi-octagonal projections at each end of the front face and a central projecting porch. The balcony roof above the porch is carried on four graceful Corinthian columns with round shafts, while two similar columns on each of the projecting ends of the building support a triangular gable. The palace is laid out in the form on a "U", with its open end to the west. Beyond the entrance at ground-floor level there is a very large hall, measuring more than 18 x 13 meters. A 3 meter wide corridor runs the entire length of the inner block. Two broad wooden staircases provide access to the upper floor. There are about 22 apartments on two floors.
  • Tajhat palace is one of the great heritage palace. There was founded The Supreme Court of Bangladesh at the end of nineteen century. Now the palace is open for visitors.
