Spend a beautiful evening with your family, friends or just as a couple. See the sunset on the Ganges, have a joyride on Boat...Click some gorgeous photographs of the mesmerizing view on the lovely Ganges. another attraction of the place is the "Scoop", the famous ice cream shop. Enjoy an yummy ice cream sitting beside the glass wall enjoying the view of the Ganges.

The place has been beautified by the West Bengal government. You can while away your time by looking at the stunning Second Hoogly Bridge and feeling the cool breeze on your face. The Second Hoogly Bridge looks even more stunning at night due to the effect of the decorative lights.

From the ghat, you can take a boat ride on the Ganges and also avail of the train service running along the Ganges.

This magnificient memorial of the British Orientalist James Prinsep is today used for many a city concert. Lit up in the evenings, it outshines the otherwise dwarfing Second Hooghly Bridge just behind it.

Built during the colonial era, this ghat overlooking Vidyasagar Setu (Second Hooghly Bridge) is an oasis of calm now popular among lovers. We saw one couple taking photos of one another there but when we aimed at the Memorial (with the Bridge in the background) from afar, the security guard shouted at us "no, no" perhaps because he wanted us to pay him "photo permission fee." When we pointed at the couple, the guard just pretended not to speak any English. We then walked towards the jetty; the sunset was stunning but the ghat itself was nothing to write home about.
