Designed by British sapper, the palace was constructed in Italian marble between 1829 and 1837. It has perhaps 900 ‘real’ doors (including French windows) as well as a plethora of false doors. Nawab Nazeem Humayun Jha is reputed to have spent an unbelievable (for that time) Rs 18 lakh on his residence. Spread over three floors, the palace has some 120 rooms. The walls are lined with old oil portraits. Artefacts include the silver throne of the nawabs, chandeliers and antique furniture.
