Amir Mahal was constructed in 1798 by the British East India Company in Indo-Saracenic style to house administrative offices of the company.
The entire area covered around 14 acres of land. The distance between the gateway and the palace is about 300 m. It is said that there are around 80 rooms in this palace and all the floors have beautiful chandeliers of various designs hanging from the ceiling.
The Nawab’s successor, Mohummad Abdul Ali, and his three brothers still live in the palace with their families. It also has a mini-cricket ground which is currently being renovated by the government.
