There is a modern palace for the maharaja.
In 1876 he was succeeded by Maharaja Rao Khengarji III., who was also a keen advocate for education and especially the education of women.
He was created a maharaja bahadur on his succession to the raj in 1898.
Within the town, the principal objects of interest are the palaces and gardens of the maharaja.
The chief educational institution is the Burdwan Raj college, which is entirely supported out of the maharaja's estate.
