HazarDuari Palace One of the most important and, perhaps the most significant tourist attractions of Murshidabad, earlier known as Bara Kothi, the Hazarduari Palace has a total of 1000 doors, out of which 100 are false. They were built this way so that in the event that an unwelcome figure enters the premises, they would be confused with the sheer number of doors, true and false, that the guards could catch up before they escaped.
The Nizamat Imambara, built in 1847 AD by Nawab Nazim Mansoor Ali Khan Feradun Jah, son of Humayun Jah. The stunning mosque was built after the Imambara built by Siraj-ud-Doula got burnt down in a fire.
Footi Mosque was started by Nawab Sarfaraz Khan. It is located towards the east of the Hazarduari Palace, at Kumrapore. The mosque is believed to be the brainchild of Sarfaraz Khan.
Wasif Manzil This Palace was built by Nawab Wasif Ali Mirza Khan, Nawab of Murshidabad. Located at the south end of Hazarduari Palace, it is touted as the 'new palace' because it was built much later.
Moti Jheel used to comprise of a palace and a beautiful lake. The lake still survives, while the palace perished. Motijheel is one of the few places that reflects both Indian and British history.
Madina is a small mosque between the Palace and the Imambara. Made to replicate Hazrat Muhammad's tomb at Madina, the original mosque's foundation had soil from Mecca, before it got destroyed in the fire. The one constructed later was built with pious soil from Karbala.
Khosh Bagh The beautiful, near 8 acre, garden area is actually a cemetery. It has the grave of Nawab Alivardi Khan along with Alivardi's Mother, Siraj-ud-Doula, his wife Lutfannesha and other members of the Nawab family.
Kathgola Located a few kilometers off Murshidabad, this palace complex, built originally to entertain European and Muslim guests during trade visits, is a marvel of its own.
Katra Mosque Another striking tourist spot of Murshidabad and perhaps one of the most well maintained too, Katra Mosque was built in 1724 by Murad Farash Khan, a devoted follower of Murshid Quli Khan.
Jafarganj Cemetery Located about a mile from Hazarduari Palace is the Jafarganj Complex. Mir Jafar originally built his palace in this three and a half acre land. But now the place serves as a cemetery for Mir Jafar and many family members.
Nasirpur Palace Built by the descendants of Debi Singh, a tax collector in the early days of East India Company, Nasirpur Palace is another major tourist attraction of Murshidabad.
Jahan Kosha Cannon
Jahan Kosha Cannon (also known as the Great Gun) literally means the Destroyer of the World.

The cannon is made of ashtadhatu or 8 metals, namely silver, gold, lead, copper, zinc, tin, iron and mercury.
