Hazarduari Palace, earlier known as the Bara Kothi is in Murshidabad in West Bengal.
It is situated near the bank of river Ganga and is a very large campus.
It was built in the nineteenth century by architect Duncan Macleod, under the reign of Nawab Nazim Humayun Jah of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa (1824–1838).
It is well maintained and the gardens, the Ganges river by side and the brilliant architecture makes it a must visit place. It also has a large display of old paintings and rare old weapons.
There are tourist guides available but they are not officially appointed guides and they are not allowed inside palace.
