Jorasanko Thakur Bari

There is hardly anyone who has not heard of Rabindra Nath Tagore and his immeasurable contribution to poetry and literature. Jorasanko Takur Bari also known as the House of the Thakur is where this famous personality had spent most of his life. There are more than 700 paintings in this house which attracts tourists. There are also manuscripts, books and antique items here that can be explored. The history and important events that this place reflects about Rabindra Nath Tagore is commendable. The sounds and lights is an add-on attraction that enhances the entire experience. The vicinity also includes Rabindra Bharti University which was made to impart education. You can also get a detailed knowledge about all the works done by the Father of Literature- Rabindra Nath Tagore when you visit this place.

10 am: Jorasanko ThakurbariJorasanko Thakurbari, the ancestral home of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, encapsulates the history of an era, of a gargantuan personality who towers over modern India and the idea of the nation even now. I decided to pay tribute to the Bard of India by visiting the house where he was born and even breathed his last. The house turned museum exhibits the manuscripts, journals, paintings and photographs of Tagore. Do not miss the Vichitra Bhavan section that gives an insight into his lifestyle, Tagore’s study and his self-composed wedding invitation in his wife Mrinalini Devi’s room.
