|More Information:||This is basically a day tour destination where you can explore various Bengali culture and Bengal history. People who love to explore old temples and architecture of Bengal or any landed aristocrat, This day tour won't let you down.
You can visit Hanseswari temple, Ananta Vasudev temple, Gazi dwarga, Kuntighat Wooden Hanging Bridge, Kunti river in any time of the year but during Durga puja you must visit Radhajibon Mustafi house and Laxmi Das Mustafi House to attend festive occasion, to mix with rural culture and get mingled with their custom.
These houses are 300/400 years old. So most of the parts of those house are getting abandoned due to lack of maintenance. Descendant of those houses mostly stay out of city due to work, hence they handed over the responsibilities to caretakers of the house.
Truly those constructions are so impressive and valuable, I love the structures, colors, designs and all. People live with dream to live in this kind of houses in their entire life. I wonder if these won't get renovated then those will get damaged soon. And if it does, the archaeological value will get lost. So what is the way to protect those heritage which are getting oblivion ?
