Very interesting historic house, formerly the home of Rabindranath Tagore, visionary, poet, teacher and revisionist Hindu priest. Excellent commentary in English and photographs give a glimpse into the lives of this Nobel Prize winning poet and teacher and his extended family. Traditional classical music gives a feel of the atmosphere in the house when Tagore welcomed musicians, poets and others... More

Tagore is the preeminent poet of India. He wrote our National Anthem in his mother tongue of Bengali. As always poems lose a lot when translated but he was a true literary genius. He also won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Great to see his home and examples of his artistic prowess. Definately worth a visit.

Tagore’s House, now the Rabindar Bharati Museum, is testimony to his influence way beyond Bengal. There are a number of galleries recording his trips abroad sponsored by cultural institutions and governments from China, Japan, Hungary, Russia and the US. (No cameras inside the shrine). As well as the rooms where he was born, lived and died.

To be where Rabi Tagore lived and worked is a privilege. They don't allow cameras in though, which is just sad.
