Description

If you have been amazed at the amazingly beautiful idols you see during the Bengali festivals like Durga Puja and Kali Puja and always wanted to get behind the scenes then you will love this tour. This tour takes you to the traditional potters’ quarter in the north of the city where these potters were forced to move when the British East India Company decided to build the new settlement and separate districts were allotted to the Company’s workmen. With the Pujas becoming grander every year these potters have moved from dubious existence to a sought after profession. Not only does this neighborhood supply gods and goddess to the city but many of their creations are exported. It has been termed as one of the seven wonders of Calcutta and thus being in the city you surely cannot give it a miss. Book this tour to discover nuances of this amazing art and document it with amazing photographs!
