Abstract: Far below Gour, but still in high repute, is Rajmahal, which has drawn interests to scholars of history. The city founded by Raja Mann Singh and adored by Sultan Shuja, at one time rivaled Delhi in splendor and luxury. Up to recent years we can spot many vestiges of the work done by Raja Mann Singh and Sultan Suja. Bishop Heber remarks of the palace of Sultan Sujah, of the stone roofed and delicately carved balcony 'stills retain traces of gilding and Arabic inscriptions. ' This paper tries to resurface the lost pomp and opulence of the 'Town' and the nucleus of the whole argument aims at revival of history of 'Medieval Eastern Bengal ', which is still in oblivion.
