The Tagore house has been thoroughly renovated particularly the ground floor. The last time I was here the renovation work had just started. It has been a museum housing the various household items used by Rabindranath and the Tagore family. The first floor still has the bed of the noble laureate with the airy rooms. There are pictures of rabindranath everywhere. The building on the opposite was closed, with a guard sitting outside. One could take a peek inside to the statue of Rabindranath. His car is on display on the right side of this building. You will love all of it.

Tagore's vision of perfect harmony between man and nature can be seen here. I suggest you include a leisurely half-day in your itinerary; to take in what the Uttarayan Complex has to offer. Then come back for more.

12 members of our family wanted to spend the weekend together and we Santiniketan,Rabindranath Tagore's work place.Two hour ride by train from Howrah station was comfortable. We booked 4 rooms at a home stay,which served fresh home made meals. We spent our time mostly gossiping togather. Toto ride through Santiniketan was also enjoyable since the the place reminds us our own poet and one of the greatest poet lived on earth, Rabindranath Tagore.

There is a cluster of five houses where Gurudev spent his time from 1919 to 1941. Each of the buildings is well kept and its furnishings and furniture preserved in pristine condition. There are photographs on all the walls which are well labelled and self explanatory. It gives you a feel of the times that have gone by and how this beautiful place grew to its present status.
