Babu Ghat is the second oldest riverside embankment in the city, on Strand Road, the Calcutta side. Built by the British, it has a Doric-Greek style pavilion with huge pillars scaffolding it. The colonial structure today, is populated mostly by priests and vendors, and the daily crowds who frequent the ghat, engaging in a variety of activities ranging from religious ceremonies to massages.
