"In the Footsteps of Tagore"

Shantiniketan translates to 'abode of peace' and the little village with its red soil and ample greenery could not have a more apt name. The site is most famous for 'Visva Bharati', a unique institution founded by the revered Bengali poet and philosopher, Rabindranath Tagore. The vision was to impart education in natural surroundings rather than closed rooms and started as a humble school called 'Patha Bhavana' which imparts education with closeness to nature. Shantiniketan Market and other shops sell handicrafts and handlooms; traditional musical instruments and leather items are among the most popular buys. Several events take place in Shantiniketan every year; Poush Mela which is a colorful display of traditional Bengali folk music and dance.
