Places to visit near Shantiniketan


1. Bishnupur: A quaint town in Bankura district of Indian state of West Bengal, Bishnupur is the land of terracotta Temples, School of Hindustani Music and Baluchari Sarees. The town’s unique architecture developed along with its art, music and handicrafts including pottery and weaving.

The town prospered under the reign of Hindu Rajas of the Malla dynasty and is considered to be the only destination for the most brilliant terracotta work in the whole of Eastern India which continues to prevail. The terracotta works on the tiles depict stories from Ramayana and Mahabharata.

2. Nabadwip: Located on the western banks of Hooghly River, in the Nadia district in West Bengal, 76 kilometres from Shantiniketan, Nabadwip is the holy birth city of the great Vaishnava Saint of Bhakti movement, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is believed to have been founded in 1608 CE and was the old capital of the Sena dynasty between 1159 to 1206, during the reigns of Ballal Sen and Lakshman Sen. The city is famous for its Raas Utsav (Raas Festival). With moderate summers and winters, the weather of Nabadwip is otherwise pleasant.

4. Durgapur: Famously called the ‘Steel Capital of East India’, Durgapur is a city in West Burdwan district in the Indian State of West Bengal by the banks of River Damodar, which is also known as ‘Sorrow of Bengal’.
