Suri Overview

Suri is an administrative headquarters of Birbhum District, in the state of West Bengal. The city is located at an average elevation of 56 metres. Tilpara barrage located on Mayurakshi River is 3 km north-east of Suri, which provides irrigation for around 2,428 sq km.

The Mor and the Ajay are the prominent rivers flowing in the district. Huge streams enter the boundary of the destination from the western side; Hinglo, being the prominent one, carries water in a large amount.

Another important river stream in the district is Bakreswar, which originates at a hot spring having the same name, near Tantipara. Being the land of water streams, Suri also receives water from various rivers such as Bansloi, Brahmani, Kopai, Pagla and Sal.

It is believed that the region was inhabited since the pre-historic era. It also witnessed the rule of the Maurya Empire, Guptas, Shashanka and Harshavardhana. During the Pala Dynasty, Buddhism flourished in the region and various monasteries were built.

The 3rd century saw the rule of Muslims and the local Hindu chiefs. The region was also ruled by the British East India Company in the 18th century. In 1876, Suri was constituted as a municipality of the district.

The destination is famous for its ‘morabbas’ of various fruits and vegetables, out of which ‘morabba of satamooli’ is popular. The natives of Suri engage themselves in cotton extracting, rice milling, silk weaving and furniture manufacturing. Along with Bengali, Hindi, English and Urdu are the widely spoken languages in Suri. Poush Mela is one of the prominent festivals celebrated in Suri.

With a rich cultural heritage, the destination is popular for its temples including Moumachi, Bamnikalibari, Jonaki, Anandpur sarbojanin, Matri Mandir and Kali Mandir.

Tourists can reach the destination though air, rail and road transport. The closest airport to reach the destination is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata. The airport is well connected with domestic as well as international destinations.

Travelling by trains is also easy as Suri Railway Station is connected with various cities such as Kolkata, Bhagalpur and Ranchi. State owned buses are operated regularly and frequently from major towns of West Bengal to the region.

Suri can be visited from November to March, when the weather is pleasant and ideal for sightseeing.

There is so much to see in Suri.
