The Rajbari, Bawali ( WB ): In the verdant country around Kolkata, just 40 mins from the bustling Alipore area is Rajbari in the 24 Paraganas where despite a mobile phone in every villager’s hand, time seems to have stalled, the pace seems slower and nature spreads her tranquil touches everywhere. A 300-year-old palace belonging to the Zamindars, Rajbari will be a delightful itinerary on your visit to the erstwhile Capital of India during the British Raj. Here, among the slowly crumbling temples and generous ‘pukurs’ (small fish ponds) Rajbari Bawali, invites you to experience the tradition, culture and cuisines of the Zamindars of Bengal.
Restored with gentle aesthetics and style, are 30 spacious rooms and suites with high ceilings, antique restored furniture, four poster beds and beautiful local fabrics. A pool, spa, library, conference room and private dining rooms are a part of the facilities here while a cuisine that combines the flavours of Bengal and from around the world will delight travellers.
Rajbari also weaves into your stay interactions and show cases elements of Bengal's history, local culture, folk lore, cuisine and day to day life outside the city. For those who are keen to explore around there are references to a tragic exodus of a group of Sikh people from a river port nearby, there is a gurudwara Komagatamaru ( after the name of the Japanese ship ) and also a settlement of chinese around the Ahchi temple. On request the management organises a magical night of singing by the wandering Bauls of the region, a display of the energetic Bengal drums and insights into local textiles can be organised on request.
Rajbari is also ideal for events and has been used for various small engagements through last year. The ambience, service and cuisine coupled with the fact that Kolkatta is an easy access ensure ease of organisation.
