Chandernagore also known as the "City of Liberty" is a small town located 30 kilometers north of Calcutta. Situated along the banks of River Ganges, the city has been able to keep herself separated from all other cities and abide by her own characteristics.
The Underground House (Patal Bari) is a beautiful example of the advancement in the knowledge of architecture and the aesthetic sense of the people of those earlier days. Its lowest floor is submerged in the river Ganges. You can also visit the Institute de Chandernagore, one of the oldest and finest museums of the entire region, which boasts a beautiful collection of French items (cannons used in Anglo - French war, wooden furniture of the 18th century)
