It has been nicely made and the location is also great, specially the hilly appearance of this venue is its main usp. I went there to attend a social / private function and the food was also very nice.

"Swabhumi heritage connected with Swabhumi Inox, Kolkata"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 4, 2015
Today I wish to share my experience at Swabhumi heritage and it's connected Swabhumi Inox! It is situated about 4 km away from Sealdah Station via Belgachia Road!

Very first thing that is mention worthy here is that this place is cheap and best for all the young people who wish to have some romantic date with their loved ones! I have spent about two dozens of evening here with my lovely would be wife! This beautiful heritage is connected with Swabhumi Inox and if you go to this heritage museum after watching a movie then they will give you a free entry to this heritage which I always do otherwise you have to pay ticket of Rs. 20/ticket.

I suggest all young love birds to have a movie experience here and then visit heritage. Some good resturant and gifts shop are also here.

A romantic evening is waiting here for you with your loved ones, so come and have an unforgettable moments here.

"Good hangout place"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Apr 17, 2014
This is again another heritage park for culture, art, music lovers. I was amazed to see some of the best madhubani paintings over here. It is best for shoppers to buy garments, paintings, antiques and souvenirs. Just be cautious because everything over here is insanely priced. Over all a good hangout place to enjoy cultural programs and food.
