Visited this place last winter after 4 years. An improved and expanded place. Very good handicrafts items as always. Best part is the interaction with the artisans working there. They are more than happy to interact with you and that is priceless. Strongly recommend to visit the new leather item factory which is 500 mts away from the main centre.

This has a historical tradition - one of the pioneer participants of Swadeshi movement Traditional handicrafts available. The volume of collection is good- variety is average. The ambience might give you some charm - live Baul songs were performed outside premises during our visit to this place.

Its a famous store that's known for it's typical shantiniketan items like bags, room decorations, wall hangings and many more. Found a little expensive though probably for its popularity

Good place to visit not to buy. Same items one can buy from little shop within the premises of Maharshi Resort or Khoai Haat.

Nothing special in this place. Not worthy to be visited by the adventure lovers like me. In sufficient communication. Congested roads and insignificant travel features.
