Monday, July 5, 2021


The state Panchayats and Rural Development department has started work for bringing up an eco-tourism destination at Orgram in East Burdwan. The place around 25 kilometers from Santiniketan, is gradually coming up as a preferred weekend destination where tourists can relax amid the beauty of nature and the mystery of forest with sheer tranquility, getting a much needed break from the bustling city life.

State Panchayats and Rural Development minister Subrata Mukherjee, who visited Orgram recently said that his department is planning to develop Orgram as a model eco-tourism destination.

“A large water body that was getting usurped has been acquired and the eco tourism project will come up surrounding this. A park has already been created and 4 mud cottages will be constructed,” a senior official of West Bengal Comprehensive Area Development Corporation (WBCADC) said.

This location has close proximity to various tourist destinations like 108 Shiv Mandir, Bhalki Machan, Randiha Barrage and Santiniketan. The remains of an old aerodrome constructed during the British period are an added attraction. Adivasi dance in the evening can also be arranged with a Santhali village located close by.

The tourists visiting the spot can relish the best of cuisines cooked with fishes available in the hatcheries and CADC farm along with Turkey, Kadaknath Chicken, Vanaraja Chicken, Black Bengal Goat etc. The traditional dishes made from poppy seeds and quality sweets of Burdwan will tickle taste buds.
