Overall the attractions at Shantiniketan are the university and the shona jhuri haat that is a flea market on weekends. The flea market is worth a visit. You get a lot of good stuff at very reasonable rates. No bargaining happens, prices are mostly fixed but quality is good. For stay, there are a few homestays that offer very good local cuisine.

Amar Kutir society for rural development - a place worth visiting for rural Bengal arts & crafts. They have a good collection of saaris specially the famous kantha stich, bed spreads, dress materials, varieties of handicrafts to choose from.
Located in a calm & quiet place far from the town, the river Kopai flows at the back of Amar Kutir.

Perhaps this was due to the effect of the pandemic - but the place barely had any good stock of items such as bags, curios, decor - all the items that make for easy souvenirs!
I expected a lot more - and found a better variety of stuff at the Sonajhuri ghat!

The amar kutir shop is a worthy place to hang on.I bought some garments which were of very good quality and a nominal value.Nothing is overpriced here.The staff here are very much trained and treat customers with courtesy.For 1thing you buy they display 1000 options.The amar kutir hesel ghar was an add on.Authentic bengali cuisine served and people are fed on kansa plates and with love.The people who serve ask you repeatedly if you need anything.Overall a complete one destination stop.

I go to Amar Kutir on every visit to Shantiniketan- lovely products made of kantha stitch, leather, pottery, dokra and wood/cane at very reasonable prices- these make for unique gifts!

It's a complex where West Bengal tourism "Rangabitan" also there.

It has live kitchen within "Amar Kutir".... called "Amar Kutir Hesel Ghar".

Veg plate 130 INR which serves unlimited Rice Ghee Daal Sukto Veg Curry Papad Chutney and Payed .Other items are as I given in the picture.

All plates .. Glass ...jug are Brass metal ....it gives pretty nice ambience.

Food Quality is above average but overall you will like it with ambience ... people ..setup.

It's just beside Kopai River ....and live Baul all the time gives a pretty good view .

Over 1000 regional handicraft items for apartment therapy -- dokra animals, katha-stitch bedspreads, coasters. I'd buy them all if money & space are no constraints.
