Sightseeing in West Bengal

Sightseeing in the fascinating state of West Bengal offers a memorable experience to the traveller. Begin with Kolkata the capital of West Bengal, a city replete with gardens, museums, temples, churches and mosques and lots of character! A walk in the moonlight at the Victoria Memorial, shopping at New Market and a ride in the subway are a few must dos when in the city.

Spend time on the beaches at Bakkhali and Digha. Check out the terracotta temples at Vishnupur and French ruins at Chandernagar. Enjoy the peace, calm and tranquility at Tagore's Shantiniketan - visit the campus of the Vishwabharti University or travel to Murshidabad, to glimpse a completely different lifestyle, that of rich and decadent nawabs.

Wind your way up snaking mountain roads to arrive at the hill stations of Darjeeling and Kalimpong. Enjoy the sun rise in the Himalayas bathe the snow clad Kanchenjunga with molten gold. Watch out for the rhinos at Jaladapara Sanctuary, take a visit to the Raiganj Sanctuary for bird watching, and try and catch a glimpse of the royal Bengal tiger at Sunderbans.
