Earlier known as Bhubandanga after the name of Bhuban Dacoit, this place was named Shantiniketan after the house built here by Maharishi Debendranath Tagore, the father of Rabindranath Tagore. This is from where also started the Brahmo Samaj. This town in the Bolpur District of Birbhum is mainly known for Rabindranath Tagore's visionary Vishwa Bharati University which is over here. The Patha Bhavan school started by Tagore is also an attraction here. Children out here are taught in the open classrooms which are inside the forest of the crimson flowers. This is how children learn to be more friendly with nature. There is also a memorial dedicated to Tagore out here. All these have made Shantiniketan a popular tourist attraction as a neighbour of Kolkata.
