The Place : Bawali District : South 24 Parganas

Just 35 km away from Kolkata, Bawali is the place to curl up with a book or to seat on the farmhouse balcony overlooking the green paddy fields and ponds or going for long village walks . In the evenings, you can sit around a campfire and chat with your friends and family. Children are guided by trained people to climb trees and pluck fruits at the farmhouse orchard. Tree houses in the farm are great attractions for children.

Anytime of the year.

You can take trains from Sealdah to Budge Budge Station. From Budge Budge Station (now renamed as Komagata Maru Budge Budge Railway Station) you can take auto rickshaws to reach Bawali. If you are taking the road, then you can take the road connecting Thakurpukur to Bakrahat or Taratola to Bakrahat to reach Bawali. Buses like SD76 would also take you to Bawali from Kolkata.

The greatest attraction of Bawali is the 300 year old Bawali Raajbari and its adjacent Navratna Gopinath Temple built during the same time. It is believed that Rani Rashmoni built the famous Dakshineshwar Temple inspired from the architecture of this temple in Bawali. A visit to the temple ruins and the recently renovated Rajbari with its antique furniture, sprawling lawns and verandahs lined with enormous pillars would be a nice experience. The famous Boro Kachari Mandir is around 6 kms from here. The Barood Ghar (ammunition depot) of the British army located just beside the river is worth a visit.

Another great attraction of Bawali farmhouse is its food. Here you can choose from nearly 500 recipes of authentic Bengali food – from the eternal snack of Mochar Chop in the evenings to the rich Dhaka styled Bhapa Ilish in the lunch. If you are a foodie, then there is whole new avenue for you to discover. You can choose to order the favorite dishes of Rabindranath Tagore and Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose too.
