The bungalow called as Kothi Farhat Baksh was actually built
by General Claude Martin, as his own residence.
This small but beautiful building is a unique example of Indo-European architecture. Later, Nawab Saadat Ali Khan purchased it from Martin and it served as a residence for successive rulers including Wajid Ali Shah.
Later, the Lal Baradari was built for the Shahi Takht overlooking this place.
