    Something not to be missed in Shantiniketan. Local sellers sell their products that are quite classy in their own way, are of good quality and are very reasonable. The vibe of the flea market is very lively. Make sure to include a weekend in your trip as these markets set themselves on weekends only.

    We visited Kanakalitola, Maa Kali shrine. It has 2 forms of darshan. One for offering Puja which usually long queue. We have to buy Puja material and stand for our turn. The temple administration does not have enough staff to regulate crowd. There is usual push and mighty making their way. The other form of darshan is quick, no puja. Only darshan. The entry point for both is same. We cannot stand there because of crowd and concern for making way to other devotees in line.

    Since it is one of the shaktisthal, it has lot of divine significance. It is 8 kilometers from Bolpur and a desirable visit. Having gone that close, we should pray for Maa Kali blessings by having Her darshan. In the same precincts, there is a shrine of Lord Shiva. Now under renovation but we can have darshan. Maa Kali without having Lord Shiva's darshan is incomplete. The parking is available for Rs.20 per car.

    Those desirous can buy coupon of Maa blog and have it. I was told Bhog coupon can be purchased from many Bhog outlets. The temple administration oversees the arrangements.

    I felt very satisfied that I could visit Lord Shiva and Maa Kali shrine. It took 2 hours to go and return from Bolpur

    Held on Saturday afternoons on the edge of the Shonajhuri forest, this market is a riot of colors!! Clothes and Sarees; Accessories (and being made to order right there by artisans); handicraft items and so much more and prices which is maybe half or even less from the cities. One feels bad to even bargain because the asking price is so low :-).

    And not to miss the Santhal dance groups, whom you can join and dance to your hears content to the beautiful rhythm.

    Though a bit on the expensive side, it’s a Lovely little place to pick up souvenirs and presents. They have some unusual options. I love the cafe too. Ask for their day’s specials. The ghugni is delicious
