Not very far from Kolkata is a palace in Kila Nizamat famous for having 1000 doors. Yes, though surprising but the fact is there are actually 1000 doors of which 900 are fake. The palace is located in Murshidabad district and was once an administration centre in colonial India. Can anyone share some interesting facts about this palace?

The foundation stone of Hazarduari was laid on August 9 in the year 1829 and that very day the construction work was started. William Cavendish was the then Governor-General.
