Kothi Khas Bagh is a palace located at Rampur
, about 30 km east of Moradabad
in Uttar Pradesh
. It was the erstwhile residence of the Nawabs of Rampur. Set in a 300-acre compound, this huge 200-room European style palace is a unique blend of Islamic architecture
and British architecture.
Kothi Khas Bagh features personal apartments and offices, music rooms and personal cinema hall of Nawabs. The huge halls, adorned with Burma teak and Belgium glass chandeliers, present a fine specimen of the architecture of a bygone era. There is an Italian marble stair case towards the main bedrooms. The statue of Kalbe Ali Khan, the second Nawab of Rampur, is an eye-catching one. Kothi Khas Bagh is now in a dilapidated state due to the age and neglect.
