Marble Palace Kolkata : The Personification Of Beauty And Elegance!

After a hectic year with my business and busy life, I always go for a long vacation through train travel around India. My friends always say that am a born culture/history lover who always found happiness in exploring historic places around India. My college holidays were always spent in my maternal grandparents villa and I loved visiting forts and knowing its glorious history in around the village. I wanted to spend my hard earned vacation in the land of Kali ma – Kolkata.

My business never gave me the opportunity to plan my vacation in a leisure phase and hence I decided to book my tickets in one of the first class flights to save time and energy. After I reached Kolkata, I was happy to receive such a kind reception from the hotel staff who took me to one of the luxurious star hotels where I had already booked my rooms. After a few minutes of meditation, I had a quick shower and planned my day’s activities. I decided to visit Marble Palace in Kolkata which has a regal legacy clinging to it. Born in Jaipur, I loved to know about palaces and hence I planned my first visit to this elegant palace.

Knowing the formalities, I already got the permission from Kolkata tourism for visiting this special monument. A rich merchant who was passionate about arts built this beautiful palace and lived in pride by displaying his artifacts. This is a three-storey building with huge pillars and open courtyards which epitomizes the charm of Bengali tradition. They have a huge collection of royal Victorian furniture, sculptures from the West and valuable painting from various parts of the cities. Since this is still a private residence of the royal family, we were not allowed to click pictures in due respect to their privacy. With a heart full of memories, I headed back to my hotel with a satisfied soul!

About Author :

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
