The place of birth of Nobel winner Rabindranath Tagore. The place is well maintained and is a must - visit for all those visiting Kolkata. Needs a short walk (about 10 min) from the main road.

This is not a regular tourist spot. For those who are acquainted with the Rabindrik Culture ,would like to come back to this Shrine again and again. for others its like a one time place. Basically a museum.
