Santiniketan

Santiniketan

The abode of peace is the first thing that comes to one’s mind when we talk about Santiniketan. This name was first used by Maharshi Debendranath Tagore, father of poet Rabindranath Tagore to name his guest house in 1863. With time, the place came to be known as Santiniketan. This town is largely famous for its rich culture and history of literature. Visva Bharati, the cultural center of Shantiniketan was created with the objective of exploring language, art, music, etc. These institutes have different fields and are uniquely decorated by great artists.

There is also a Chhatim tree where Debendranath meditated. This place was truly inspired by The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London. The peaceful place was roofed and floored by white marble and walled with glass.

For people interested in literature, the town seems like a good spot. Along with these, we have Sonajhuri haat. It is a village market that represents local handicrafts, folk music sung by tribal groups and local food. For the nature enthusiast, we have Ballabhpur Wildlife Sanctuary located 3 km away from Santiniketan and is popular as Deer Park. Established in 1977 it is now a large wooded area with herds of deer and makes a natural bird sanctuary.
