Izifiso Backpackers' Villa

Haunted Camping

What if suddenly you come to know there exist a place like "Vuter Rajar Desh" of Satyajit Ray's Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne. I bet you will be excited and if you are a Bengali you must be thrilled. So, yes there is a place. If you really want to feel the thrill of paranormal presence around you Mangalganj is the place. Located 100kms from Kolkata it is a small village nestled among green and serenity. The chirping birds, the gentle breeze of the forest and the soothing sound of the Ichamoti will make you feel connected to nature. Also it is famous for the old, now derelict Rajbari known as 'Kata Saheber Kuthi'. Originally built by Maharaja Mangalchandra the 'kuthi' have many chapters in it's history. During the british rule it was a 'Nilkuthi' and so it is the mute spectator of the brutal tortures of the british to force the locals to farm only 'nil' or the blue dye. Then came the Swadeshi movement. The life and death of many freedom fighters were also written on the walls of this place. But this place have more to offer.
