Kolkata to get heritage block around Sarada Devis house


The Mother`s House

Kolkata will soon count another ‘heritage block’ to add to its enviable range of built history. This block will be centered around Mayer Bari or Sarada Devi’s house and other sites that will be a part of this block are: Udbodhan building, Nivedita’s house, Girish Ghosh’s quaint building and the Hooghly (Mayer Ghat).

Ramakrishna Paramhansha’s wife Sarada Devi had lived at the two-storey house off Bagbazar Street for 11 years (1909-1920). The house will be an integral part of the heritage-cum-religious tourism project conceived by theA?Mamata BanerjeeA?government.
