Viceroy Curzon

 

George Curzon served as the Viceroy of India during the years 1899 -1905. His decision to partition Bengal was an important misstep of the British Raj and led to a number of complications.

Viceroy Curzon's contribution to India were also in the fields of preservation of India's art.  He ordered restoration of the Taj Mahal  and took measures to preserve the great monuments of India, including Ajanta.
