Trips and Itineraries for Burdwan

Around 4 pm, we take a break for 15 mins at Saktigarh, a small town in Burdwan district, 80 kms from Kolkata, famous for making 'Langcha', a spindle shaped syrupy fried sweet and anyone on this highway will stop for few items in particular - langcha, 'jhal muri' (a mix of puffed rice, shredded tomatoes, coriander, chilies and host of condiments), the tangy sensation in the mouth coupled with the cold breeze as you stare at the passing trains on the horizon is something we just won't miss....

Weekend Getaways from Burdwan  

Kolkata, or Calcutta (also Cal), is a kaleidoscopic melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. There's quite possibly no Indian festival that the city doesn't celebrate with glorious hoopla. Each month sees small festive marquees popping up at every corner of the street and come October, throngs of women enwrapped in silk sarees and red bindis convene around the city, undeterred by the ever-present rains. This celebration alone is reason enough to travel to Kolkata. From the glut of vibrant attractions, the city also holds a rich vehicular heritage ranging from the big yellow taxi that floods both parts of the city (Calcutta and Howrah) divided by the reticent river Hoogly, to the hand-pulled rickshaws and rickety trams meandering the roads. Tourists will hardly ever run out of things to do in Kolkata. Starting from Kumartuli, a traditional potters’ quarter, famed for its sculpted idols of gods and demons, to the architectural spectacle, that is the Howrah Bridge, Kolkata city will engulf you with its sights, sounds and scents. Calcutta’s biggest, most prismatic wholesale flower market on Mullick Ghat, Victoria Memorial, the old Chinatown Tiretta Bazaar, the magnificent Nakhoda Masjid and Jorasankho (Rabindranath Tagore’s ancestral home) are few of the most picturesque places to visit in Kolkata.
