Address: VISVA-BHARATI PO : Santiniketan West Bengal, India Pin 731235
How to go: Journey by train will be best. Many trains are there from howrah as well as Sealdah or Kolkata station like Maa tara exp, Kabiguru exp, Rampurhat pass, Haldibari exp, Santiniketan exp etc. Around 3 hours it takes and after getting down in Bolpur you can hire toto to reach the destination.

Cons: Dust, Communication
What to visit ? Pous mela, Basanta Utsav, Biswa Bharati Compound, Deep park, Sonajhuri Khoai Hut, Kopai river bank, Majhi para village, Amar kutir, Sriniketan
Company: People who are influenced by Rabindranath Tagore and culture of Bengal
Minimum day/time to visit: 3 days max
Locality: Town
Expenses: Please check the 'Note' section
More Information:
  • Most rushful time of the year. 1. Pous mela (December) 2. Basanta Utsav (March)

    Tips:

    1. It is safe to book train and hotel ticket atleast before 3 months.

    2. It is hard to manage to get the ticket if the hotel is not booked, but train ticket can be manageable by doing the break journey i.e. via Burdwan.It may take total 4 hours to reach Santiniketan.

    3. I would recommend to follow http://chhutiresort.co.in/ to get an extremely delightful experience in these events. Obviously I booked this resort previously. I strongly recommend to take the food facilities from this place.

    4. Hire car for 5 hours basis to cover all the places in two days. My suggestion would be on the first day, visit Khoai-kopai-Majhipara-Amar Kutir-Sonajhuri(Belasheshe house) side. On second day visit the whole Viswa Bharati campus with proper guide(They will charge around 300rs.) and also Rabindra museum(Timing upto 3:30pm and fare 40 Rs./adult) and finish those within 5 hours. Start journey from the hotel around 9 am to cover 5 hours nicely.

    5. Remember nothing will work as the darkness begins. So enjoy Santiniketan in day timing.

    6. The car you will hire they will charge 1500rs for 5 hours. So definitely if you are going with 6/7 friends you will enjoy the most. LOL.

    7. In Pous mela season you can visit mela in evening time and enjoy the famous performances(Baul performance, lokgiti, tribal dance, play etc) as well as shopping.

    8. REMEMBER IN FESTIVE SEASON THE TOTO DRIVER WILL SCREW YOU OUT BY ASKING OFFENSIVE AMOUNT.
