About Chandannagar

A small town, only 30km from Kolkata, perched on the banks of Hooghly River, is a town where the French influence has come together with local tradition to form a beautiful imagery unlike the rest of the state. It is a forgotten little town with a lot of character. Chandernagore, known as Chandannagar now, boasts of being the hideout of many celebrities and revolutionaries including Rabindranath Tagore. It has many tourist spots that are not so well known but a treat for both tourists and history enthusiasts.
