Floating market Patuli Kolkata

It is the first floating market in India and the third floating market after Bangkok and Thailand in Asia. There is 121 ships in the lake. All the boats came from the Hooghly’s Balagarh area. Many beautiful coloured boats scattered around. By the middle beautiful wooden bridges have gone through all the sides.

The bridges Railing height is up to the waist. With these bridges, you can reach any part of the lake. Installing small gates on the sprawling gates of railings, from which you can purchase goods. Every boat has a power connection. The walls around this huge pond are being painted in different colours. There are many benches all around the lake for resting. The place has been made more attractive by planting different types of trees.

In each boat, two vendors could sit easily. There is no doubt that another feather is going to be added to the crown of Kolkata. Since then, when people from all over the world come to Kolkata, they will come to see this outstanding floating market. I am proud of all my pride in India’s first floating market.

The surrounding area of Patuli is very pleasant. You can spend a delightful evening is this entire place. Outside of the floating market, there is other attraction like, you can sit between a small lake and a busy wide road, Some big size idol is there. You can see Debi Durga Maa structure, Ganesha, small Howrah Bridge.
This can be include with your Sonarpur trip.

Tripura Sundari temple

Tripura Sundari devi Temple is a spiritual place goddess Sundari related to Hindu Goddess Kali and Lord Shiva. The environment was very calm ambience and peaceful also well maintained. I feel it is a hassle-free experience for temple visitors or tourists. It is  very near from Garia bus stand.

At the temple gate, there is a small shop too on the premises. Where anyone can buy prasad, flowers, incense sticks and candles for Tripura Sundari devi ’s puja offering. The Place and the Puja they did was really heart touching and satisfying.

The tripura sundari temple opening time is Morning 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. and evening 05:00 pm to 08:00 p.m. Here almost all kind of rituals are performed like Shraddha, batsarik, marriage, etc and all the rituals are performed in a perfect manner.

Price Chart for all the rituals please contact the mandir office. I think The Archaeological Survey of India should take care of this place. Because many archaeological pieces of evidence are available here which can reveal many new facts about the ancient history of Bengal. For going to this place, take an auto from Garia to Boral and get down to the maa Tripura Sundari temple stoppage.
