Nandeshwari Kothi, designed by James Prinsep is a classic building of the early 19th century in Benaras. The Nandeswar Kothi built in the late 18th century now belongs to the Maharaja of Benaras.

Though the building has undergone a lot of change since its construction, the interior details of that period still survive including the doors and a few pretty chimney pieces with fluting and corner rosettes.

King George V and Queen Mary stayed here in 1906, as the Prince and Princess of Wales. Although the external finesse has dwindled, the water colors of the interiors linger on.
