Weekend Getaways from Tarkeshwar  

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.

About Tarkeshwar

This is a very important place of worship, especially for the Shavite sect. The Takeshwar Temple is a beautiful pilgrimage site on the banks of Ganges. It was built by Raja Bharamalla in the 18th Century. The temple can be visited the whole year round but the time of Shivaratri has a different charm altogether. There is also a fair that is organised at this time every year. Monday is considered to be the most auspicious day to visit the temple, and bathing in the Dudhpukur Tank is a holy ritual followed by worshippers. It is said that the waters of the tank have divine powers which can fulfil your wishes. The Buddha temple nearby is also an attraction here. The Tarakeshwar Lodge is the only option to stay here though it won’t provide you with any fancy facilities.Distance from Kolkata : 62 Kms
