Ahiritola Launch Ghat

Ahiritola is a major Ghat in Kolkata and has been serving as a busy ferry terminal for past many years. It's a quicker way of travelling across the Hoogli river as the heavy traffic jams on the either entrances of Howrah Bridge is a big trouble for daily commuters and visitors. Ferry service from Ahiritola Ghat connects it to Howrah and Salkia, available every 15 minutes. Ferries in Kolkata are the city's lifline, for the city will come to a standstill without the ghats and the ferries.

After shopping, trotting and eating I finally got on a haath rickshaw, that dropped me off at Bhootnath Mandir. Post worshiping Baba Bhootnath, I went on to board the launch from Ahiritola to Howrah Station. Boarding the launch for me has always been one of the most exciting modes of transportation!
