The recent trend of Bollywood shows a lot of films being focused over Bengal. If ‘Piku’ had shown you a glimpse of old Kolkata, ‘Gunday’ was pictured around Purulia, and ‘Barfi’ showcased rural Bengal in its full bloom.
Why Bengal and not any other place? In spite of not being a super-hit tourist destination, is there anything worthwhile enough in Bengal that may simply push us to go for a vacation in there? We have compiled in a few points that any traveler would love to know about Bengal.
PS. And, the best part is, all of these points are REAL—we’re no longer immersing ourselves in sheer nostalgia.
If you want a Nawabi gateway, hit Hazarduari in Murshidabad or if you are hooked to India’s colonial past, a visit to Darjeeling or Calcutta will simply mesmerize you!
Well, if we forget the cheap politics part, at least!
Or, sit idly along the banks of Murti river and enjoy nature at its best!
Is it time for a spiritual awakening, guys?
Be wowed by the intricacy.
Especially, the Baluchari sarees the pallu of which depicts scenes from ‘Ramayana’ and ‘Mahabharata’ with finesse.
Does rugged terrain excite you, and bring out the poet within you? If yes, go to Purulia, with only the chirps of birds and the burbling of water to “disturb” you! And, if you’re in for some activity, trek to the Ajodhya Pahar.
With the beautiful, serene Himalayas and the adjoining dense pine forests as your fellow travelers!
Ah! You shall be spoilt for choice as far as beaches are concerned. From the overcrowded beaches in Digha to the adventurous beach in Mandarmani, the serene beaches of Tajpur, Junput, Bakkhali and others, you shall have quite a difficult time in fixing the best among the rest!
Visit the modern art galleries here, and you shall know the reason behind this proclamation! Or, simply visit Kumartuli!
You got to savor this service to know what we mean!
That’s the charm of Bengal—ah love!
Correct us if we are wrong!
So, when you are going to visit our beautiful state?
