If you have the soul of a traveller trapped with the head of a historian, this one's got to be the place you've been looking for all days and dreaming of all nights.
Unlike most of the leftover ruins of the British era, the Cooch Behar Palace is something to take away your heart at the mere glimpse of it. It not only informs us about the life that existed more than centuries ago but also represents the heritage of ancient India.
The Cooch Behar Palace situated in the stae of West Bengal resembles the Buckingham Palace in terms of the architecture. Not just the breathtaking exteriors, but also interiors, decorated with antique chandeliers and paintings, work to leave you wondering.
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has been assigned the responsibility to look after the palace and to maintain it. The India royals of the British Raj were keen on imitating the British architecture.
According to sources, Maharani Gayatri Devi was born in this beautiful and lavish Palace, in the year 1919. She is believed to be the prettiest women on earth during the era. Maharani Gayatri also participated in politics, and worked for the 'Swarajya party'.
The Palace is believed to have been designed by Maharaja Nripendra Narayan, who was the Koch King.
It is an amalgamation of beauty and mystery.
