A good place to revive the life of one of the greatest writer in Indian history. The place is decently connected with Kolkata city and offers a calm environment to spend your time. Only visit once you know a bit about Rabindranath Thakur.

Ancestral house Devendra Tagore and his famous sons like Avanindranath and Ravindranath Tagore. Mementos and memories of yore still preserved very well. Ravindra Bharti is just behind.
