Murshidabad in West Bengal is a historically important site and is known to be the first capital of Bengal, before the British took over the reins.
Once a very prosperous and rich city, it was ruled by a few Nawabs. There is a host of gardens, tombs, mosques and palaces in and around Murshidabad that tell the tale of the Golden Ages of this town. The palaces here are made in the Italian style of architecture, which is truly exquisite. The Hazarduari Palace is another chief attraction of the place, spread out over forty one acres of land.
The Madina Mosque next to the palace, the Nizamat Imambara and a new place called the Wasef Manzil on the banks of the holy river Ganga are also some places of tourist interest.
