Shobhabazar Rajbari (Shobhabazar Royal Palace) is the palace of the Shobhabazar royal family located in the Indian city of Kolkata. Raja Nabakrishna Deb (1737-97), founder of the Shobhabazar Rajbari, started life modestly but soon amassed considerable wealth in his service to the British, in particular by his role in assisting to topple Siraj ud-Daulah. During his lifetime Raja Nabakrishna Deb built two houses. The building at 33 Raja Nabakrishna Street (known as Choto Shobhabazar Rajbari), on the northern side of the road, was the one first constructed by him, subsequently given over by him to his adopted son Gopimohan. The house at 36 Raja Nabakrishna Street (known as Baro Shobhabazar Rajbari) was built by him when a son was born to him later in life and was left to his natural son Rajkrishna and his descendants.
