  • I was so proud to visit this place. An Art n craft Center established way back in 1897 with the basic aim for promoting local handicrafts. Their work includes mask making, carpet weaving, painting...

  • It is just opposite Pine View Nursery...Here Rabindranath Tagore stayed some times now it is like ruin...Govt. should restore it properly...It is closed on sundays and one have to visit it from outside on sundays so try to avoid visit on sundays...
  • The sign board mentions that this is Craft Teachers Training Centre. It is just opposite to Pine View Nursery and this house is where Rabindranath Tagore stayed for sometime in 1920s. The name of the house is Chitrabhanu. There is a marble plaque mentioning the name. The house was very well maintained. But now the condition is bad due to lack of maintenance and damage due to a past earthquake. State Government must do something to restore this beautiful house as it is very close to the heart of every Bengali. There is a picture of Mrinalini Devi in the study room. There is supposed to be a museum here but there is no guide so the visitor will return sad and disheartened.
