Brijrama PalaceIndia/Brijrama+Palace
 
 

Brijrama Palace is one of Varanasi’s oldest landmarks. Set along on the banks of the River Ganga, it was built in 1812 by Shridhara Narayana Munshi who was the minister for the Nagpur estate. In 1915, the Brahmin King of Darbhanga (Bihar) acquired the palace and the Ghat came to be known as Darbhanga Ghat. In 1994, the palace was bought out by the Brijrama Hospitality group. At that time, it was in a complete state of disrepair and in dire need of repair. It took 18 years to completely restore the palace, which was then subsequently renamed Brijrama Palace as a tribute to the founder of the Clarks Group, and his wife.
