As winter is setting in and the numbers of coronavirus cases are showing a downtrend, travel enthusiasts are ready to hit the road again. Located around 200km away from Kolkata, Shantiniketan has always been a favourite weekend destination for Bengalis. Established by Maharshi Devendranth Tagore in 1863, this land of red soil and vast paddy fields is literally the ‘abode of peace’. However, Shantiniketan owes its rich cultural heritage to Rabindranath Tagore whose greatest art and literary works bear a unique association with Santiniketan. Beautiful rural landscape, unique festivals and great cultural significance – there’s much to absorb and learn and witness in Shantiniketan.
Tourists usually come here to relax and get an insight into the life of not only the bard but the entire Tagore family.
