More Information: History in short

Shri Gunendranath Tagore is the person who had bought this 12 acres land adjacent to Ganges river to build this house in 1870. He was the father of Abanindranath Tagore. Shri Abanindranath was very attached to his father. He used to come to this garden house in his childhood days and spend months over here. This is the place where little Abanindra start his lessons of art and painting in his childhood. It is said that during leisure Gunendranath Tagore used to hunt this area with his son Abanindra and he used to like his father's company very much. They also live with lots of pets including deer, horse, dogs, monkeys etc. There was a Muslim Mazar inside the campus. They did not try to demolish that but there was a time when Muslim community people used to visit that mazar for pray on every Friday. You can also see that till date.

Everything was going well until Shri Gunendranath Tagore's death on 1881. Shri Abanindranath could not take that huge loss of his life and he abandoned this house and never came back. He mentioned in many of his column that there is a hell and heaven difference between before and after time and it is hard to handle. After this incident this house is being sold from one to another and gradually it become abandoned.

In May 2007 it has been undertaken by West Bengal Heritage Commission and got renovated.
