A comfortable stay, mouth-watering food, and activities to keep you entertained, what more could you ask to make your staycation perfect? Bari Kothi is a place of heritage filled with traditions and history that will indulge you.

In addition to conventional and luxurious amenities for your stay, they have an elaborate plan that takes you back in time, when the history of Bari Kothi and its era flourished.

They host storytelling events where other Sheherwali families are invited to share their untold stories with the host family. They also offer instruction in the ancient embroidery technique known as “Kantha” stitching. You can also experience the views and sounds of the Ganga, which flows past their backyard.

Several of the Kothi’s original chambers, including the Music Room, Sheesh Mahal, Library, Gaddi Ghar, Durbar Hall, Janana Chowk, Gulabi Chawara, and Halwai Khana, are still in existence today.
