Cossimbazar Rajbari, where history tells everything. Experience a royal stay at this heritage property offering lavish rooms and premium amenities.The Roy family has converted a few rooms of the palace into guest rooms where you can enjoy the old world charm and traditional hospitality. It can also be a base to explore the historic city of Murshidabad.So next weekend, head out to this town by the Ganges and book a room here.
The Cossimbazar Rajbari was built when Murshidabad was the capital of the nawabs of Bengal and the town was a flourishing port. A few of the rooms have been converted into guest rooms and some have been made into a kind of walk-through museum with everything, from antique furniture to animal trophies. Check out the Central Ballroom with its paintings, chandeliers, mirrors and Victorian-era furniture and a hall with five huge arches (it used to be the court room). The bedroom has an old four-poster bed and one of those old-fashioned dressing tables. Check out the hand-pulled fan which had to be manually operated with a rope by someone designated as the ‘punkah-puller’.
Come here during the winters or Durga Puja when the family palace holds the annual rituals at the renovated ‘chandimandap’ — a hall with an open courtyard in marble.
