Nimtala Ghat Street

The Nimtala Ghat Street is known for Nimatal Burning Ghat or Nimtala Crematorium which was set up in the year 1857 in the Beadon Street. The Nobel laureate and the famous Indian peot Late Rabindranath Tagore was cremated here. This is an ordinary crematorium which is made famous after the memorial for Rabindranath Tagore. One can step into the memorial and get a chance to revisit the glorious history of one of India's most beloved poet.
This was founded in the year 1827 and great personalities like Rabindranath Tagore, Manik Bandopadhyay and many more had their last rites carried out here.I realized that in these busy streets also lies a place where a journey of a life ends passing on to a next journey of life again.
