Why would someone want to visit the not-so-happening-sounding Kolkata? If you follow my tripoto profile, you would know. and here is one another reason of visiting kolkata. Ganga. one of the most vibrant watercourses. Like Kolkatans, Ganga gives its best for the laidbacks. To relish and cherish Ganga, one must stop for a while, take out half an hour from buzzing life and only enjoy the stream. the medley of birds is the cherry on top. This view is from Belur at around 17:00.
One can opt from the boat ride from Belur to Dakshineswar.
