#0 of 6 things to do in Chandannagar

This is a magnificent example of aesthetic architecture and modern thinking in terms of architecture. The beauty of this house is that the lower floor is submerged in River Ganga. It is amazing how people in those days could come up with this concept of architecture. Back in the days, this house was owned by the zamindars of Bansberia. Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore often used to visit this house making it a favourite tourist spot in Chandan Nagar. It is said that he wrote a lot of his poems and stories in this place as it improved intellectual capabilities. Thus there are many mentions of this place in his stories.
