South Block

The building consists of three wings, each of which were constructed at different periods of time. Among them, the southernmost wing was constructed during the lifetime of Revati Mohan Das himself, in the late 19th century. It was built as an enclosed mansion with a traditional courtyard, where privacy, security and the cultural heritage of the owners were given the topmost priority. This wing in particular created separate zones for men and women.
