La Martiniere


Today it houses one of the leading educational institutions of the city which was started in it in 1840.

The finest and the largest example of European funerary monument in the subcontinent, La Martiniere is associated with its rather strange and romantic past. Built and designed by French soldier turned architect Claude Martin, it incorporates the features of Italian architecture, fusing them with native architectural attributes of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Another college by the same name is situated in Kolkata.
