“The Bastion” is a semi-circular extension of the Palace wall which protrudes from the edge of the palace facing the east. The Burj Room is located towards the north end and hence named after the river Varuna. It affords a magnificent 180-degree view of the entire crescent at Varanasi and hence the Ganges in all her glory.
A lovely seating area in the viewing turret, a bedroom and ensuite washroom with a shower cubicle are other features of the room that opens to a long terrace overlooking the river. The turret is a unique design you will find only in Brijrama Palace.
