On the way to Kalna, Dumurdaha can be reached. I have a special interest in this place. My kulguru Swami uttamanadaji Maharaj’s ashram there. It’s called Uttam ashram. The ashram is very near to Dumurdaha station. He has many ashrams in all over India and in Dumurdaha is the main ashram. Other monks are also staying there. The place is very peaceful. There is also a staying facility for outsiders. Only veg food is allowed in this place. Lots of flower garden, trees surrounded in that place.

The prayer and the arati are very memorable for me. There is a special place for ladies also. There is a very beautiful river just few feet left. At the time of Sivaratri and Magh Purnima, their calibration is most popular. That time another ‘shishya’ is coming from another location to celebrate the occasion.

The Purbasthali is the haven for migratory birds. The lake belongs to Burdwan and Nadia. Fishermen have interest for boat rent and fishing, for that they facilitate keep the lake clean. Every year lots of birds are coming from a different location. The birds have returned when the temperatures are rising in the lake. There is a picnic spot also.  Everything is very disciplined.

    Since we’re planning a day-trip and back by car, do you suggest tripping by a car is good (to the places to visit at Ambika Kalna?), or suggested to take riksha?

    Also, in Google Map I found there were two places – Ambika Kalna (rail station) and Kalna – if we hop by car which place we should target to reach? You see I have not enough knowledge about the place at all, so looking for your good suggestion! TY!

  2. Hi santanu,

    All the spot is very near from “Ambika kalna” railway station. Auto or riksha is parking might be a problem for all the places because of some narrow road. It will take Maximum 2 to 3hour for visiting all the places. If you have a car then you can go kalna and dumurdaha asram also. If you go with family You can find mental peace over there. Best of luck for your journey. Full day you can utilise. Please ping back after came back. Eager to here your experience.

    (Writing from mobile, please dont mind for typo error)

      Thank you very much for your suggestion. We shall go in the family actually, me n my wife and our infant. It was indeed a subject to think whether it’s good to roam by car to those places. After your suggestion, now we are at least sure that it’s better to grab a rickshaw instead. Perhaps we park our car somewhere (although I don’t know where) and take a rickshaw.

      Sure thing, I shall let you know once come back ) and no problem with the typo.

      Thank you!
