Located beautifully on the southern bank of River Bhagirathi, Murshidabad is a wonderful city and the district headquarters of Murshidabad district in the state of West Bengal. Murshidabad was the capital city of Bengal in the Mughal period and is the only place in India which has included European spellings in its name like Murshedabud, Muxadavad and Murshedebad etc.
It is such a nice and beautiful historical place and the top most scenic attraction of the city is the bridge over the River Hooghly. Murshidabad Travel Guide is incomplete without a mention of its rich cultural heritage. Tourists throng this place in large number to have a glimpse of the rich grandeur of its monuments like Imambara, Katra Masjid, Hazarduari Palace and Motijheel etc.
