Situated on the banks of River Ganga, Chandannagar is a serene spot with several historical buildings and a meditation centre. A great place for relaxation, it lies in the interiors of Bengal, about 50 km from Kolkata. The major attraction is the Chandannagar Museum that houses gorgeous artefacts from the British and the French rule, along with relics from the Nawab rule. The museum has an institute that offers French classes. Tourists can also head to Patal Bari, literally meaning the underground house. The striking feature of this house is that its lowest floor remains submerged in the Ganges. Another attraction is the Sacred Heart Church that has been built in the French style. This 200-year-old structure is made of white stone and looks splendid during sunsets.
