There are numerous places around Kolkata which can be visited over a weekend. Mayapur is one such place. It is the headquarter of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness). Mayapur along with Krishnanagar and Nabadwip can easily be your next weekend getaway from Kolkata…
Holy cities of Mayapur-Nabadwip and historical city of Krishnanagar are pleasant weekend getaways from hectic city life of Kolkata. Situated in Nadia district of West Bengal they are a perfect green pill for the eyes and fresh air for lungs, along with flavors of history, spirituality and holiness as per one’s taste.
This travel-account covers Kolkata to Mayapur trip via Krishnagar by train and Mayapur to Kolkata trip via Nabadwip by train, as on June 2018. I hope this information will be useful for someone planning a trip to any of these places. Detailed historical information about the places-to-visit are easily available on Wikipedia and so mostly excluded from the post.
