The more you discover the city, the more you come to appreciate and marvel at Vidyadhar Bhattacharya's town planning talents. He divided the area available to him in rectangular blocks or chowkris. The palace complex occupied two of these nine blocks, which was approximately one seventh of the total city area. The other seven blocks were given equal, if not more, attention and had beautiful buildings lining the wide streets. Each area had a clearly defined line of construction, the permissible height as well as elevation of the building.
