Overview

Ex Kolkata: 4 Hrs (170 Kms)

Rabindranath Tagore’s vision of setting up a school along the lines of the previously existing system of gurukul – a residential school where students lived with their teacher/guru – was the foundation stone of Visva-Bharati. To actualise this vision, the ashram set up by his father was converted into an open air school. This acquired greater visibility when Rabindranath Tagore received the Nobel Prize and went on to utilise the funds received to further expand the school and rename it from Visva-Vidyalay to Visva-Bharati – meaning communion of the world with India. It was recognised as a central university in 1951

Visit to the Tagore’s Ashram – Amarr Kutir – with its display of local handicrafts; Rabindra Bhaban Museum; Chattimtala – meditation spot of Tagore’s father; Khoai Mela – every Saturday with artisans.
