Just over an hour away from Calcutta, but a world away in time, lies The Rajbari Bawali. The former home to the Mondal family, whose history dates back to Akbar the Great, this palatial structure has been lovingly, painstakingly and sensitively restored to recreate an extraordinary era; a time when the Zamindars, whose wealth was renowned, lived an extravagant, opulent life, yet one which also contained, music and dance, art and literature.

This undertaking, eight years in the making, has produced the only one of its kind, a restoration project in West Bengal which has recreated the lifestyles of the Zamindar’s in both its’ aesthetics and experiences. No stone has been left unturned and the attention to detail from the décor, to the food and cultural immersions offered, culminate to create what we describe as ‘Inspired Heritage.’
