"Experiencing the Past"

Situated near Baghbazar, Shyambazar and Kumortuli, Shobhabazar or Sovabazar was once one of the most prosperous areas in Kolkata, Maharaja Nabakrishna Deb being one of its most prominent residents in the past. It was also a place that was known for its extravagant Durga Puja celebrations as well as the rich architecture that dominated at the time. Of course, most of the past extravagance is lost today, but it still has an air of nostalgia all around. Today the area is marked by many old markets that sell household goods, Puja items and other such sundries. None of the markets are worth shopping at, but if you want to view something that has stood the test of time, however battered and tattered it may be, do visit this unique neighborhood in North Kolkata.
