Address: Vill- Natungram, P.O- Patuli, Katwa, Bahara, West Bengal 713512
How to go: Any local train going towards Katwa, Agradwip is the railway station to get down. From there take local tracker which is going through Mistripara. It will take around 10 min and 15 rs hardly. Tell driver that you are going to Notungram art village.

What I have noticed bus, rickshaw or toto is not going to the destination unless you hire something. But I don't think for Notungram only this is necessary to hire.
Pros: Communications, amazing art value, helpful village people
Cons: Nothing such i found
What to visit ? Notungram Mistripara, Kathia baba asram (Sri Sri 108 Swami Janaki Das Tapoban Ashram)
Company: Family, art lover, photographer
Minimum day/time to visit: 1 full day
Locality: Village
Expenses: more or less 200 only excluding all extra expenses
More Information: Intro

The village is known as Notungram, but more preciously this is Mistripara. Notungram is adjacent to this village and not so far from Agradwip railway station. Almost 60 artist families hold the tradition as wooden doll makers for several years and most of them are entitled as Sutradhar and Bhaskar. They mostly concentrate on the wooden figure of Owl as we all know owl is considered as auspicious escort of goddess Laxmi. Besides that they are perusing dolls of Radha-Krishna, king-queen, wooden stool and chair, door and show piece as well.



Nearby attraction



Whom you can hire

If you want to cover all the places you can hire Sujoy Sarkar (+91 8116807993) who is very gentle guy and keep patience through out the whole journey. Do not avail toto until and unless the road condition gets well constructed. Ask him and then hire correctly. He can arrange car too. I strongly recommend to take car so that you can cover all the spots without any harassment. You can include Khirgram Jogatta Kali temple also which is 17 km away from Sribati.

But I would suggest, make him clear that which train you want to get in while returning so that he can be well prepared to fetch you there within time, also ask him about the road condition. You can make the whole conversation before journey to avoid harassment.



Stay

Government of West Bengal's Department of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises & Textiles has developed Natungram as one of the Rural Craft Hubs of the WB. WBKVIB has developed an art gallery along with lodging facility that is equipped with all basic amenities. You can contact with the number +91 9333386501 or visit the link http://toureast.in/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Wooden-doll.pdf for more information.



Points to discuss

  • Like other art villages in Bengal, the artists of this village also organise art fair every year in January in their own village. The environment of the village gets entirely changed, the lights, colors from various corner attract people to come and be a part of the auspicious events. To be very frank, villagers eagerly wait for those days every year, because that is the only way of interact with visitors and explain the art directly. People get to know about their work and hurdle of life.
  • I believe, buying stuffs from them directly is always been better than buy it through medium. When you can interact and grow interest for a particular product, you will feel good and give people the idea of nurturing and buying it.
  • Must visit Kathia baba ashram, this is such a beautiful and peaceful place to spend time. Also you can avail lunch buying coupon from that place. Interaction with any disciple from that place will give you piece and calmness. The temple will remain close from 1 pm to 4 pm. But the premises will remain open all the time.
