Also you can enjoy the Jhal Muri, Badam Bhaja, Icecream Bhutta while taking the long stroll along the river. If you want to stay there for a day or two, you can stay at “Sagarika Tourist Center” maintained by West Bengal Tourism Dept. or at “Ganga Bhaban”. On a full moon night, sitting down beside the river, the experience will be out of the world.
