Shantiniketan: The Poet's Abode of Peace

The place: Shantiniketan, 150 km north of Kolkata.

Why would one want to visit: Houses Visva Bharati University founded by the great poet Rabindranath Tagore; Tagore museums.

A visit to Shantiniketan had been in the bucket list for ages. Although I visited Kolkata thrice in the recent past, I could not budget time for Shantiniketan which is just 150 km away. So on my fourth visit of Kolkata, I made the Poet’s Abode of Peace the only place on my list.
