In the early 17th century, India’s opulence and riches, starting from the varied spices to its silk, to pottery and jewelry attracted the Europeans to establish outposts nestled in the little towns by river Ganges within the 80 km stretch from Kolkata. The first European colony to obtain permission to setup trading outpost in Bandel was the Portuguese followed by the Dutch in Chinsurah, Danish in Serampore, French in Chandannagar and finally the British in Kolkata. Exploring the colonial heritage of Bengal is a once in a lifetime kind of experience that traces its roots to legacies that have withstood the ravages of time.
