Calcutta Travel Guide

Marble Palace

Marble Palace

One of Kolkata's most unusual sites, this palace was built by a local member of the 19th-century gentry in a marvelous patchwork of classical architectural styles. Lavish use is made of Italian marble, and the lawns contain an eclectic pantheon of statues including Christopher Columbus and the Buddha. The Marble Palace is a place of drama and dilapidation - and unsurprisingly, has frequently been used as a movie set. It remains a private residence, however, so you'll have to arrange a permit to view the interior (a worthwhile activity, if only to gawk at the impressive art lining the walls). Next to the palace, you'll find the Marble Palace Zoo - the first zoo opened in India, it is now primarily an aviary, housing peacocks, hornbills, pelicans, storks and cranes.
