Location is North Kolkata, just after Girish Park crossing will be at your left if you are coming from Central Avenue with a huge entrance portraying the "Rabindra Art". Walk 5-7 mins or if you are with your own vehicle parking available at the entrance of... More

Well kept memoirs and paintings of the Tagore family, this is the family's ancestral house. Nominal entry fee. Lockers with keys provided for bags and cameras. A bit difficult to find.

Visit to Jorasanko Takur Bari , the ancestral home of Rabindra Nath Tagore, is a memorable experience. The atmosphere inside the house was enchanting. The museum is worth watching.

The place is located in one of the poorest settings possible to be a tourist place. No effort to improve it. Its basically a museum. The place has... More

It was a rainy day raining profusely when we decided to go on touring old Kolkata (North). Travelled by Tram, Jorasanko is a place near Chitpur. A big palace, now maintained by the State Govt, Heritage site. The place where Rabindranath Tagore was born, historical walkthrough. There is an entry fee at the entrance but it is worth visit
