Taki is just a 2 hour distance from Kolkata. It is located in the banks of the Ichamati river. On the other side of the Ichamati river is Bangladesh. Taki is the land of Zamindars. Once there were palatial houses in Taki, however, all of them are now in dilapidated condition. There is 129 acre Machranga Island which you can visit by taking the launch service from the ferry ghat. The Ichamati river is engulfing the island at quite a pace. Another attraction of Taki, is the Durga immersion ceremony. Every year where lots of people on both sides of India and Bangladesh gather to watch the immersion ceremony. It is an auspicious time to reap harmony among people from both sides. Boats from both sides sail to Ichamati for the immersion of Durga idol.
