A trio of Bengali towns—Khushbagh, Baranagar and Murshidabad—boast beautiful architectural monuments closely linked to the ruling families of the area. The well-preserved 18th-century tomb and mosque in Khushbagh and beautiful brick temples in Baranagar both stand in quiet rural areas that invite contemplation. Enjoy lunch back onboard the ship as you continue downstream to Murshidabad. As you round the river’s bend, a most unexpected sight unfolds before you—the massive Hazarduari Palace, famous for its thousand doors, both real and false, and its fine collection of antiques and British colonial artwork. Climb aboard a horse cart for a lively ride to Katra Mosque, one of the largest and most interesting in the region. Indulge in a lovely dinner followed by the evening’s entertainment.
