Tasty Fish
Apr 2019
Dominated by natural fishing lakes or bheris, responsible for producing some of the tastiest fish in West Bengal, Babur Haat is a nature paradise. Long stretches rice farmlands, vegetable orchards, mango groves.

a raw place, very original, very typical of Calcutta. One will feel the unrefined strong vibe of Calcutta here. You can bath, photograph, watch people-bird-water.

Bathing Ghat
Jun 2019 • Solo
Babughat is a bathing ghat and remains crowded most of the time. The view of Howrah bridge from here is magnificent. Hindu Priests are also there to do some kind of puja.

Babughat is located in the Downtown Kolkata near Esplanade metro station. Babughat is a evening hangout place for couples and family's. People can reach this place using a circular rail or by bus. This place is beautifully decorated and illuminated.

Babughat bus stand
Feb 2018 • Solo
Babughat, Baje Kadamtala Ghat, Baboo Raj Chandra Ghat is one of the many ghats built during British Raj, along the river bank of Hooghly on its bank on Strand Road at Kolkata side. The bus stand of babughat is the filthiest place on earth. It is the most dirty place I have ever seen and is due to the illegal hawkers that occupy the stretch and make the place dirty and polluted. The administration don't seem to take care of it due to reasons unknown. Anybody visiting Kolkata should come to see this or else the actual picture of Kolkata won't be clear

Breathtaking view!
Feb 2018 • Friends
The view here is just breathtaking. You can see both new and old Howrah bridge from here. The Hooghly river adds charm to the bridges. Best time to go is early morning and evening. Also you can’t miss the boat ride! The crowd is most of the time not very good and you see very less family crowd. Overall, good.

Massage anyone?
May 2017 • Friends
The colonial pavilion houses many little shrines tended by priests. It can be bustling during religious holidays. Food and flowers vendors as well as barbers seem to be conducting a brisk trade. Down the steps towards the Ganges, families of maslis tend their trade. I visited Babughat a few times over several trips to Kolkata and eventually made friends with the maslis while sharing cups of tea. Early massages seem to be done on wrestlers living nearby, but any man can get a great 1.5 hour massage for IR 300.
