I am heading to Burdwan
Bardhaman or Burdwan as popularly known is a city and headquarters of the Bardhaman district in West Bengal. It has always been an important city since the Mughal times, when it was known as Sharifabad. The history of the district has been a long tale of violent conflicts and skirmishes with the Pashtun, Mughal and the Marathas. Burdwan is known to be named after the Jain Tiranthakar Vardhamanswami or Mahavir; who lived here for a considerable time, according to the Kalpsutra scripture. While archeological evidence has proven that this region was inhabited even during 2000 B.C. In current times, just 100 km from Kolkata, Bardhwan is a sprawling city with modern infrastructure and amenities. However, despite modern industrialization, the small town feel and green suburbs are rejuvenating for people coming on business or taking a short vacation from fast paced city life. Despite being a major commercial and trading center that retains its rustic charm and traditional heritage, strong cultural ties still binds the community together and tourists are attracted by the typical Bengali culture, lip smacking cuisine and vibrant fairs and festivals held all round the year. From quaint tea shops to luxury hotels, Burdwan caters to all strata of tourists and suits every budget.
