  • It's very historical place with great significance. Our tour at Murshidabad we visited here at beginning.
  • Historical Place. Purono diner kaman ache
  • A big cannon called jahankosa. Means earth big cannon . The cannon is nearly 7feet
  • Although located in interior, but if you have came to Murshidabad you must be roaming around in a Tanga, so reaching there is no problem. The most fascinating fact is that despite of its age, this iron canon is still free from rust!! This truly shows the knowledge and capability if the blacksmiths in those days.
  • Unique ancient gun... Required 6 elephants to move it. Front loading gun... A bit crowded....
