Ruppur: The carpet of yellow

Ruppur is a quaint village in the Ranaghat district of West Bengal. Covered with beautiful mustard fields, known for its sweet dishes, wide variety of flowers and its handloom industry, it is a perfect place for romance in a rural setting. HolidayIQ reviewer Saheb says, “There are many beautiful villages in Krishnanagar. There is Raja Krishnachadra's palace that is cool and there is no crowd, so you can take your time and explore. There is Jalangi River by the city. You must visit the church which is very beautiful.”

Must-see: Mayapur, Roman Catholic Church, Rajbari, Ranaghat

How to reach: By train: The cheapest way to reach Ranaghat from Kolkata takes you 1h 30m, which is to take the train Hazarduari Exp from Kolkata to Ranaghat.

Watch the idols being immersed

On Dashami, the last day of the puja, married women bid goodbye to the goddess with the sindoor khela ritual which is smearing vermillion on each other. In the evening you can visit one of the most popular immersion points is Babu Ghat. An excellent way of seeing it is by boat often arranged by the West Bengal Tourism Development Corporation.

3Bangla, West Bengal
Bangla, West Bengal

The name is enough to tell you that it is a ‘Bangla’ liquor, made in West Bengal. It is a traditional distilled country liquor made from fermented starch and tastes brilliantly desi and strong. HolidayIQ Traveller Damayanti Bhattacharyya shares, “The place is local yet universal because of Tagore culture. You get simple delicious Bengali food but revel in shopping handiworks of local tribals. They are artists in wood and clay and leather and cloth. You can enjoy baul songs and bangla(local rice drink).”

It’s a village resort, 55 km from Digha, a sea side resort, East Midnapur, West Bengal, India.

We were there for two nights. It is very calm and quite, having it’s own organic kitchen garden. A small rivulet called Bagda is flowing on eastern side which can be enjoyed sitting on a bamboo bench on the bamboo made balcony, exclusive to each cottage. Total 4 cottages are there, thatched with straw but they all have modern washrooms attached to them. Good quality Bengali food was served to us. One can request them from before for some special menu. All village artefacts from that part of Bengal are available for sale. Even a small library is there. Other village entertainment objects are also available. One should carry mosquito repellents although mosquito nets are there. All personal emergency items must be carried by the traveller as the place is located very interior. Car parking is available.

West Bengal is one of the famous place in the country. There the people are so good at heart. This is so peaceful place that you ever see. Here the atmosphere is also so good.. Also this is the memorable place and also historical place ever... So you can enjoy here. That's it.

West Bengal Overview

West Bengal is situated in east India, with Bangladesh abutting most of its eastern border. The states of Orissa, Jharkhand, Bihar lie on its west and its northern parts touch Assam and Sikkim, as well as the international borders of Bhutan and Nepal. Till 1947 this state was part of the larger Bengal region, which was split up into west Bengal and east Pakistan (which later became Bangladesh). This partition means that a chicken's neck strip of narrow land (just 21-40km in width) in West Bengal joins the landmass of India to its northeastern states.   South of the chicken's neck, West Bengal is a fertile agriculture-based plain that produces a lot of rice. The plain ends in the Ganges's delta, where the mighty river (called Hooghly in this state) flows into the Bay of Bengal. The estuary is known as the Sunderbans, the world's largest Mangrove forests that is a UNESCO heritage site. This network of creeks, canals, and rivulets, is home to tigers that are adapted to living in such a watery environment.   North of the neck, is the Himalayan region, with British colonial-era hill stations like Darjeeling, Kuseong and Kalimpong. Darjeeling district at heights of 750-2000m produces high-quality Darjeeling tea, which is a world famous brand name in itself. In India, West Bengal is most associated with being governed by a Communist Party the CPI-(M) for nearly 30 years, making it the world's longest ruling democratically elected communist regime.   The capital Kolkata (popularly known by its former name Calcutta), a metro city with an international airport and good infrastructure, is a suitable base for travelling in eastern India. Till 1911 Calcutta was the capital of British India, and Victorian buildings and churches from that time survive in today's crowded city. Nearby are the Belur math and the Dakshineshwar temple, associated with 19th-century saint Ramakrishna Paramhansa. West Bengal also has ancient monuments such as the ruins of the Gaur empire in Malda district and the unique terracotta temples of Bishnupur. A popular sea-side resort is Digha.
