I love to travel and take snaps of those amazing historical places that I visit. This time I wanted to have a visit to Kolkata’s one of the most happening and most loveable destination for couples and photographers- (PRINCEP GHAT). Princep Ghat was built in 1841 and named after JAMES PRINCEP (anglo-indian-research and scholar ),he carried his research mainly on meterology, chemistry, sculptures, numismatics, archaeology etc. This place reminds us about the history of India when it was under the flag of british empire.
In the early times royal british entrourages used this place for embarkation and disembarkation but now the scenario is little different, there are boat rides which you can find in babughat…maximum range of 4 people can ride this boat at a time…the boats are not driven by any mechanical way but by the drivers in an old and mystic way,they row the boats slowly which gives your heart a flavour of ethinicity and your mind a boost of primitive Kolkata. Apart from this there are low cost ferry rides for crossing the river hoogly. Towering above the hoogly river is the vidyasagar setu which adds to the charm of the ghats, the glowing midday sun and the sunset are spellbound to watch…for a photographer it feels like a magician has cast a spell on me to capture all those moments in my camera. The setting sun and the red glowing sky ,the glittering water when the rays reflects over its surface robs my heart of its innocent beauty. I cant move from that place at any instant and like to keep on gazing for the rest the time.
