    Baradari, Dist.- Sahebganj

Baradari (Lat.  250 04 31  N., Long. - 870 46 47 E.) is situated about 32 km from the district headquarter of Sahebganj and about 480 km from Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand. Baradari is also known as Nageswarbagh. There is a dispute on the builders of this building. Some scholars attribute it to Fateh Jung Khan, rival of Raja Man Singh ( 1592 onwards), whereas another group of scholars attributes it to Mir Kasim Ali (prior to 1763 AD.), the Nawab of Bengal.

Built on a high ground the building consists of an immense wall of bricks of about 9 meter height on a platform measuring about 18.10 x 16.25 meter within an area of about 295 sq mt. Presently, the remains of the wall is measuring 5 meter in height. There is a gate at one corner of the enclosure with provision for the guard - rooms. A row of apartments run through the inner walls, each consists of a small open court meant for ladies and their female attendants. There is a common arched gallery in front of all these apartments facing the interior court, in the centre of which it is said, stood a square building chiefly made of wood and known as 'Rang Mahal'. At present we do not find any traces of such a Rang Mahal.
