Quila House is a private residential house on the banks of the Ganga river in the old town of Patna, in the state of Bihar, in northern India.

Quila House has been home to five generations of the Jalan family since the site was bought by Dewan Bahadur Radha Krishna Jalan in 1919.

The house is known for the collection of objets díart and antiques that is a personal achievement of Radha Krishna Jalanís. It is sometimes referred to as the Jalan Museum, but this is a misleading term, as the house is not a public building. Nevertheless the Jalan family are happy to welcome visitors by appointment or by invitation.
