Counted among the best entertainment spots on the riverside in Kolkata, Outram Ghat holds a charm of its own. Be it birth-related ceremonies or idol immersion during the festive season, it all happens at Outram Ghat, which lies to the south of Babughat. This quaint ghat lies in close proximity to the Howrah Bridge and is an ideal site to enjoy a morning or evening stroll. As the gurgling Hooghly river plays with the banks, visitors can walk along the ghat and look at the sky turning into an artist's palette during sunrises and sunsets.

During colonial times, Outram Ghat was the perfect site to enjoy nature walks. It was also a major port for many foreign cargo vessels. This ghat has been named after a valorous general of the British army, Sir James Outram.
