Rabindra Bhavan Overview

Ranked 8 of 16 sightseeing in Santiniketan

Rabindra Bhavan was established in Santiniketan in 1942, which stands on the shores of the River Kopai in West Bengal’s Birbhum District. Santiniketan houses the international university of Viswa Bharati, the foundation of which was laid by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore as a platform where the cultures of the east would meet the west.

There is also a general section devoted to the letters, paintings by various popular artists, where even the original manuscripts of Tagore’s writings are preserved properly. Admission to the museum is free.

Restores Rabindranath

Situated on the banks of Kopai, this bhavan makes you closer to Rabindranath Tagore. Go around and you will come to know more about his life and works. This is like a museum giving an insight to the life of the legend.
