15. Kamarpukur -Situated on the banks of the river Damodar, this is the birthplace of the great saint Dri Ramakrishna Paramhansa. The best attraction here is of course the temple dedicated to the saint with a beautiful marble statue of his holiness. Other than that there is also a library, dispensary and a school. The jute mill you find here is there to train young people and make them aware of our heritage. This is a nice and simple option among weekend getaways from Kolkata and the Deer Park is a cherry on the cake.
