Explore the Historical Charm at Murshidabad

Murshidabad was the last capital city of independent Bengal before the British completely established their supremacy there. The town was stood on the banks of the Bhagirathi and was named after the Dewan of Bengal, Bihar and Odisha, Nawab Murshid Quli Khan. It was declared as Bengal’s capital in the year 1717. The city was named for its grandeur, exquisite silk, and a magnificent historical background. It was also the base for the great Battle of Plassey (Palashi) where Siraj-ud- Daulah fought against the British army under the leadership of Lord Clive of the East India Company. In 1773, the capital of Bengal was shifted to Calcutta (Kolkata).

Places to Explore in Murshidabad

Hazarduari Palace: The word ‘Hazarduari' means 'Thousand Doors'. The palace indeed bears a thousand doors, and so is the name. Among these thousand doors, only nine hundred are real ones. The palace was built in the year 1837, during the time of Nawab NajimHumaun Jah, a descendant of Mir Zafar. It was made by Duncan McLeod and is so far one of the most popular attractions in Murshidabad. There are 114 rooms and eight galleries in the palace. It bears several valuable historical artworks including the portraits of the Nawabs, ivory works from China, and many more.

NizamatImambara: It is the largest Imambara in Bengal and might be the largest in India as well. Nawab Nazim Mansoor Ali Khan Feradun Jah commissioned its construction in the year 1847. It faces the northern side of Hazarduari Palace.

Madina Masjid: The mosque was the only structure built by Nawab Shiraj-ud-Daulah that survives to these days. It was made with clay brought from Karbala to fulfil the wish of Shiraj’smother. The other attractions around it is the GhariGhar (Clock Room) and the 16880-pound cannon made by Janardan Karmakar in the year 1647. A story goes about it that the cannons sound was so terrible that once a pregnant woman gave birth to a child being scared by the sound. Hence, it is known as the Bachhawali Kaman.

The Battlefield of Plassey The great battlefield marks a critical epoch in the history of Bengal. It is located about 40 kilometres south of Murshidabad and is a place that surely worth a visit.

Katra Masjid: It is about 3 kilometres from the railway station in Murshidabad and is about a mile to the northeastern side of the town. Nawab Murshid Quli Khan built it in the year 1723. The mortal remains of Murshid Quli Khan's mortal remains lie buried below the steps of the mosque from 1727. The mosque indeed bears proofs to the architectural glory of Bengal and is no doubt one of the must-visits while in Murshidabad.

Katgola Palace: The place stands as the ruins and remnants of the old banking house of the Jagat Seths at Kathgola. It is located at Mahimapur, which is a few yards away from the Nashipur Raj Bari. Jagat Seth is one of the prominent names in the history of Bengal. He was the banker to the Nawab and accumulated enormous wealth. Most of the fortune came from the Jade trade. The green jade was considered of great value by the Mughals, and they use to acquire it as one of their prized possessions.

Kiriteshwari Temple: It is one of the oldest temples of Murshidabad district. This temple stands five km away from the Dahapara Railway Station. It is said that Sati's Kirit, i.e., the crown fell here. That’s the reason this place gained immense fame as a Sati Pith.

There are several other popular attractions across the city. Each of them bears a unique history worth knowing at its backdrop. They are as follows,
