  • This is a great place to visit.Beautiful Archituctue and historic designs. Its inside the heart of the city. At the gate the Watchmen will ask for permission, then he will ask for 100 INR. Further inside also there will be guides behind you for money. Its a good place and maintained. Still family of the owners lives there. So the whole palace is not opened for Public. There is lot of hidden details of the place, the guide doesnt know anything much.
  • Good collection of paintings by Raja Mullick.Single wood carvings are Awesome. But due to Low lighting you can't even see the paintings and some other antiques.
  • The art in this palace was definitely worth 5 stars, if not even more. Ranging from amazing Ming vases to European paintings and a beautiful marble floor, every art lover should consider going here. The reason for the 3 stars is how the staff took care of the place. When we wanted to enter, a man with a spear told us that we need a permission from the office for tourism. We didn't have it so he told us to pay him 100 INR, a fair entrance price for a place without an entrance price. We wanted to have a look at the countless amazing sculptures and paintings but they didn't let us in without a guide whom they offers us for 200 INR per person. I told them we couldn't afford the price as students and asked them about 100 INR per person what they immediately accepted. Our guide, a young boy, just pointed out obvious things while going through the palace. He named all the named of the paintings and sculptures which could be read on the item, anyway. Questions from our side remained unanswered. He didn't seem to have any interest and respect in the sculptures and art since he was frequently touching them. I would still suggest anybody who is interested in art to go there, since it truly is a breathtaking place. It's would have been a better experience with a set and official price and staff which actually cares about art.
  • Highly recommended if you want to see the beautiful carvings.. there's marble, there's paintings artefacts everywhere.. colourful birds.. big clocks.. big mirrors.. Amazing place
  • Come and indulge in this one-of-a-kind Palace of Raja Rajendra Mullick !!
