ITACHUNA RAJBARI

 

The other name of Itachuna Rajbari is ‘ Bargee Danga’. The term has been derived from Bargee, which was a name given by the Bengalis to the Maratha warriors. There was a time when Maratha’s attacked Bengal repeatedly to collect tax. After the Maratha warriors stopped their attacks, many of them stayed back in Bengal and started their own trade. They amassed a lot of wealth. One of such Maratha warriors were the Kundans, now known as Kundu’s also settled here. The Itachuna Rajbari was built in 1766.

 

 It’s a place where you can go and just be yourself, where you can connect with nature and disconnect yourself from the material world. Here happiness is not only in spending money. One can fly kites on the terrace, listen to flute, sit under the starlit sky with the noise of the last passing train, soak in the music of the locals, smell the wet soil…..cosy bedrooms, clean washrooms, great food, unconditional smiling services will pamper you.
