Liv’ED It: It is an ED original style where we write about our personal experiences on experiencing and reviewing any app/place/website which gives us a feeling of coming back for more.

Itachuna Rajbari (Haveli) is just one of the few old and extravagantly huge mansions that have been revamped into hotels for weekend getaways.

It is also one of the few mansions that have made it to the list of “The Most Haunted Mansions in India” and “The Top Haunted Places in West Bengal”.

After an awfully tiring week, one always wants to buzz off to a place away from all the materialistic pleasures, diving into the depths of the historic era. If you’re in West-Bengal and ever feel the same way, Itachuna Rajbari is a two-hour drive from Kolkata and believe me, it’s worth it.

The only thing one needs to keep in mind is the advance booking which is mandatory because the only beings entitled to loiter around there are the spirits. (Sorry not sorry!)

Do you remember the ‘Lootera’ (the movie) mansion? Yeah, it’s the same house! I flipped too.

From the high ceilings to the balconies, the corridors probably lead to a maze of history,

From the terrace to the mosaic floors and the rooms that are locked maybe a tiny mystery.

The red brick walls that take us back in time are also the only witness to history being made,

More than 250 years old is this manor that still stands strong will never let the memories fade.

Once you get there, the sight is breathtaking. It’s like flipping through your history books once again. Only a part of the manor has been devoted to accommodation while the other part still stands still in time. The lawns, the courtyard, the staircases just add to the old world charm of the place. The buildings are more than 250 years old but extremely well maintained because, like all of us, they too believe in- Old is Gold.

Is it really haunted?

Like I’ve already mentioned, it has successfully made its way to the clichéd articles. Few reviews and reports would suggest the same. But then again, “ghosts in Bengal are either literary or just underground.” Owners of the Rajbari admit to having heard such stories but never encountered such an incident. Residents of the village claim to have seen and heard a lot but to what extent it is true, no one knows.

The matter in hand is the very fact that old houses, mansions, and palaces tend to be a little eerie (blame it on the articles and word of mouth). The age old stories about the house still doing the rounds clouded my mind when I first walked in but the beauty of the place managed to overpower it.

The other name for Itachuna Rajbari was ‘Bargee Danga’ which might have been a name provided for by those Bengali’s of the Maratha warriors. There was a point when Marathas struck Bengal over and over again to gather the Chauth, which might have been 1/4th of the taxes that was to be paid by Nawab of Bengal( Sub-e-dar), Bihar Also Orissa.

Apocryphally, following Aurangzeb’s downfall of the Mughal realm). The Bargees struck Bengal under the direction of Bhaskar Pandit and Raghuji Bhosle (1742-1752). Katwa, close to Hooghly was made the punctual focus which might have been later transformed on Medinipur.

However the Maratha warriors quit their strike after the death for Mir Habib, they picked up control through Orrisa. As an aftermath, a lot of people Maratha Bargee’s stayed in Bengal Furthermore, they amassed a considerable measure about riches.

A standout amongst such Maratha warriors were those Kundans, Currently known as Kundu’s additionally settled here. The Itachuna Rajbari might have been constructed by the progenitors of Shri Safallya Narayan Kundu for 1766.

The Government of India’s policy of abolishing the Raj-culture hindered further flourishes of the Rajbari. It is the present inheritors of the family- Shri. Rabindra Narayan, Shri. Dhruva Narayan and Shri. Basav Narayan Kundu along with Mylestones & Journeys who have decided to restore the glory.

And are making all efforts to maintain the royal heritage through regular upkeep. The Heritage Homestay is one such initiative through which village tourism may be promoted in this area.

An experience that has carved it’s essence in my memory lane. The Itachuna Rajbari not only takes you back to the prehistoric times but makes sure you live every minute of it. Be it the traditional utensils in which they serve authentic Bengali food with a variety of options to choose from.

Or be it the tiny mud huts recreating the countryside aura. And for the young ones not quite interested in history, they have an array of games/sports/activities which is likely to keep them busy throughout.

That is not it, they arrange for barbecue and Bonfire in the winters, a must watch is the rural musical session, summer camps, day outings and the night walk in the area is something you wouldn’t want to miss.

Itachuna Rajbari takes you a step back in time and when in Bengal, you just cannot afford to miss this opportunity.

Words cannot describe the vibe of the Rajbari. It’s the warm hospitality, coffee and the roshogolla (yes, I said it) that will do the talking for you.

The other name for Itachuna Rajbari is ‘ Bargee Danga’. The term has been derived from Bargee , which was a name given by the bengali’s to the Maratha warriors. There was a time when Maratha’s attacked Bengal repeatedly to collect Chauth, which was 1/4th of the tax that was to be paid by the Nawab of Bengal( Sub-e-dar), Bihar and Orissa. Apocryphally, after Aurangzeb the downfall of Mughal empire had started. The Bargee’s attacked under the the guidance of Bhaskar Pandit and Raghuji Bhosle from 1742-1752. Katwa , near Hooghly was made the early centre which was later changed to Medinipur.

Though the Maratha warriors stopped their attacks after the assassination of Mir Habib, they gained control over Orrisa. As a result many maratha Bargee’s stayed back in Bengal and started their own trade. They amassed a lot of wealth. One of such Maratha warriors were the Kundans, now known as Kundu’s also settled here. The Itachuna Rajbari was built by the ancestors of Shri Safallya Narayan Kundu in 1766.

The Govt.of India’s policy of abolishing the Raj-culture hindered further flourishes of the Rajbari. It is the present inheritors of the family Shri. Rabindra Narayan, Shri. Dhruva Narayan and Shri. Basav Narayan Kundu along with Mylestones & Journeys who have decided to restore the glory and are making all efforts to maintain the royal heritage through regular upkeep. The Heritage Homestay is one such initiative through which village tourism may be promoted in this area.

Mylestones and Journeys – Most of us here come from the holiday / travel / tourism background. Staying in Kolkata, we have always wanted to buzz off for many ‘ 2 nighter ‘ holidays with the family / alone / with friends – somewhere within 2 hours driving distance / somehwere we can go and just be ourselves / where we can connect with nature and disconnect from our material lives / where happiness is not only about spending money / where we can fly kites in the terrace, play kabaddi, listen to the flute, sit under the starlit sky with the noise of the last passing train, soak in the music of the locals, smell the wet soil …………… cosy bedrooms, clean washrooms, great food, unconditional smiling service that will pamper us.

It was our dream to work on destinations and projects where we could do simple things and build something worthwhile, something our next generations will be proud to inherit / give shape to our smallest wishes / breathe life into our ‘ thousand ideas per minute ‘ / make little contributions in the life of people around us / work together as a unit with multi-level resources – both human and natural / learnings and experiences through combinations of urban and rural lifestyles / responsible tourism we may call / ………. itachuna rajbari came to us as a blessing …. we took the first baby step towards living our dream, our dream to be a part of many such initiatives through which we may contribute to our personal lives, our livelihoods, our society, mankind and much much more ….

Top 10 Most Haunted Places in India- Few Spooky Tales

Most Haunted Places in India

India is a large and diverse country that has always been rich in ancient history and diverse mythological stories. Innumerable wars, revolutions, or honor killings brought untimely death, unnatural occurrences, and supernatural instances, which became part of our superstitious beliefs. 

However, for many logical minds like me, it may look like nothing more than a myth or some illusions. But, legends have it, that there are several instances of supernatural powers and occurrences in various parts of India which exists still now. And those, very experiences have made the places abandoned for good and been termed as haunted places. 

Ghost stories, haunted experiences may definitely sound cool and adventurous in movies and books but when it comes to experiencing the actual haunted places. That is a different ball game altogether. 

Most Haunted Places in India

So, if you are brave enough and want to really dig deep into places that have been mentioned below. I have you covered. Some of the stories are from the experience of the writers itself. 

Listed below are the 10 most haunted places in India

1. Morgan House, Kalimpong

Table of Contents

By Madhurima | Orange Wayfarer

Most Haunted Places in India

Ghost stories are part and parcel of rural Bengal life, especially if the ghost is related to the past. The past is steeped deep in the memory of the British Raj. 

The Himalayas were a favorite for the European colonists. It brought them the much-needed respite from the scorching heat of Indian summer on the plane lands. The towns of Darjeeling and Kalimpong remain dotted with remnants of erstwhile British society. It is a no brainer that they come with a little anecdote British lifestyle and remnants of the owners.

Morgan house at Kalimpong is one search property and is considered as one of the haunted places in India. It is a humongous lodge overlooking verdant valleys and also your eyes experience an astounding sight of the Kanchenjunga on a bright sunny morning. However, to spend a night at Morgan house you need to come prepared with the nerve of steel.

A rumor goes, the bungalow belongs to Lady Morgan who died a premature untimely death. Her spirit wanders off the Hills of Himalaya, refusing to leave the world.

Since Mrs. Morgan was subjected to domestic abuse, her husband left the properties soon after and went back to England. Mrs. Morgan has not appeared in front of anyone till date. However, the sound of her heel-walk in a spur of rage at the dark of night is still a talk of the town.

2. RoopKund -The Skeleton Lake or Mystery Lake 

By  Pradeep Chamaria | Exatraveller  

Most Haunted Places In India

GO AWAY – was the message conveyed by a decayed human hand just up to the shoulder, with the flesh and nails intact – Why are you here?

Yes, folks, this was how we were welcomed at the Lake of Deads, RoopKund Lake (which is known as one of the haunted places up in the Himalayas) after trekking facing torrential rains for six days, an encounter with a tiger, etc. 

But determined, we made it to this beautiful lake with emerald waters – nestled between the lovely peaks in deeper Himalayas.  

The lake area is haunted and you see scores of human remains of people reported to be over 7 ft in height all around the area – skulls, teeth, and parts with flesh intact as the climate does not allow decaying. An army has been reported to have vanished during an avalanche while it was trying to cross a pass near the lake. These unnatural deaths have intensified the curse.   

My friend – as he walked around – found an Ivory Ring (used as tent hooks during old times) and picked it up and carried it back with him. And that’s where the problem started – all along the way back – he complained of unusual sounds whenever he tried to sleep. Even his watch stopped – and the time on the watch was exactly when we were at the lake.

After coming to know this in Delhi, I immediately realized that we have carried back the curse. But for an educated person, this was hard to believe. We took the watch for repairing – and it started working the moment it was opened by the technician. I was relieved, but the moment we came back home, we found the watch stopped again. 

This happened 4-5 times, and then we were sure that we have to go back, perform a puja, ask for a pardon, and pray for their nirvana. We did that and came back home – AND YES you have guessed it right – we found the watch properly working in my friend’s home. 

3. Dumas Beach, Gujarat 

By Mayuri Patel | Fernwehrahee

Most Haunted Places in India

Located along the Arabian Sea, the Dumas beach near Surat, Gujarat is the most popular weekend destination for People of Surat City. As I am living in Surat, I have visited Dumas Beach nth no’s of times for beach sunset or for its Famous Tomato Bhajiya (tomato Fritters) . In monsoon, you can see People devouring crispy bhajiyas in heavy rain!! Nothing can beat the food of Surat!

But the famous Dumas beach is considered as 3 rd most haunted places in India . Dumas Beach in a day looks beautiful packed with people while at night, it looks devil’s town as sun goes down, nobody dares to visit it at night! The beach is said to be burial ground for Hindus for several years and so lots of spirits reside here.

I have heard many stories if anyone has tried to stay overnight either they never came back or had their worst experiences of Life! During the day the surrounding of the beach and trees near shore will give you eerie feeling and as the moon shows up, Paranormal activities are being reported by locals of Dumas village. They have seen white apparitions and moving orbs along with myriad other mysterious activities that can’t explain! But till date, nobody could figure out about this.

Last year, one of my friend’s relatives had one such experience! When the person was sitting on a bench near the beach, he had seen one Person, talked with him and then the Person went into the coma! Don’t know what had happened and who was He!

There are so many stories like this and I always freak out when I hear something like this!

Dumas beach is 20 kms from Surat, Gujarat and you can easily reach via Public transport.

4. Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb (New Delhi)

By Suman Doogar | Nomadic Shoes

Most Haunted Places in India

Jamali Kamali Mosque and tomb belong to a Sufi pir in Sikandar Lodhi’s reign known as Jalal Khan. Located inside the Mehrauli Archaeological Park adjacent to Qutub Minar complex in New Delhi . This mosque is ill-famed for sightings of paranormal activities at night. Some believe that the mosque is possessed by Jinns. Nightguards and visitors have heard strange noises coming out from here. Many have alleged to have seen a shadow of a person prowling behind one of the columns but upon searching could not find traces of anyone.

Due to these claims, people do not visit Jamali Kamali but it is one of my favorite historical structures in Delhi. The red sandstone structure is adorned with marble and the ceiling is opulently decorated to remind people of the marvel of Mughal architecture. If you visit during the day, then there are two guards on duty and they are quite vigilant. 

5. Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan 

By Anjali | TravelMelodies

Most Haunted Places in India

Dubbed as one of the most haunted places in India, Bhangarh Fort intrigued me to no end. After reading and listening to the haunted stories about the fort, I decided to go check out myself.

Not that I believe in ghosts (yeah, I’m as scared of them as a normal human being), but the idea of visiting a place that’s infamous for being ghosts’ abode was hard to resist.

On our trip to Jaipur , I added Bhangarh to our must-visit list. Just about 90 km from Jaipur, it can easily be explored as a day trip from Jaipur. A picturesque drive through the countryside with almost no soul in sight was beautiful, adventurous, and mind-numbing – all at the same time.

The signboard by ASI warning the tourists not to venture inside the fort after sunset scared us out of our wits. Upon entering the fort, the sight of a huge number of locals was reassuring. They regularly come to perform religious rituals in the temples inside the fort complex. Yes, there are quite a few architecturally beautiful temples inside the fort complex. The royal palace affords a breathtaking view of the village.

The fort is mostly in ruins now and ASI doesn’t seem to make an effort to maintain the site.

The stinking dark rooms and corridors have been inhabited by bats that again makes it look ghostly. You get that uncomfortable feeling where you just want to run away from the place. The place has negative energy and does feel spooky.

Locals believe that the fort is cursed and they’ve two different legends to prove their point. They narrate nasty stories that whoever went inside the fort at night never came out of it. Truth or publicity stunt, no one knows. Do you dare to know? Well, we decide to leave the fort before sunset with unanswered questions.

6. Itachuna Rajbari – West Bengal

By Ishani Nath | Buoyant Lifestyle

Most Haunted Places in India

With time the residences of the feudal lords of West Bengal, some of which are now renovated into heritage properties are claimed to be one of the haunted places in the state. Some of these palaces are around 300 years old.

 It’s quite obvious that many mysteries and stories circle these heritage buildings. No one knows how valid these stories are. Some are created for entertainment and others to keep away outsiders from trespassing or put off thieves. 

It was in February 2020 when I along with my two friends were on a weekend tour to Itachuna Rajbari in West Bengal’s Hoogly district. Itachuna Rajbari was constructed by Shri Shaffalya Narayan Kundu in 1766. A mansion so old speaks volumes about its glorious past. I wasn’t surprised when I heard that the palace is one of the haunted places in Bengal . Who knows what lies beneath the closed doors, the mosaic floors, those pillars, the chandeliers, that are all witness to what happened while the Kundus reigned. 

Some people claim that figures of saree clad women are seen sometimes walking on the terrace. The local people from nearby villages claim to hear footsteps and people walking around in the pressing darkness inside the Rajbari. Of all haunted places in Bengal this is one of the most talked about. 

While I was there I was quite curious but I didn’t encounter any ghosts. But I cannot deny the fact that there was an eerie feeling. 

7. Warwick House, Jeolikote (Uttarakhand)

By Avantika Chaturvedi | Wayward Wayfarer

Most Haunted Places in India

Jeolikote is a small village some 15 kilometres before Nainital. From a hidden natural pool to a sunset point, there’s plenty to do here. Moreover, it’s a relatively lesser-known state to most travellers makes Jeolikote a great offbeat destination in Uttarakhand. However, the story of Lt Col Warwick as told by the villagers looms over this beautiful hamlet like a dark grey cloud.

Lt Col Warwick was a British officer who had come to this small village near Nainital for some official work. During his meanderings, he met a local girl and they soon fell in love and eventually married. Warwick and his wife lived in a newly built bungalow in the village until his wife passed away a few years after their marriage. 

Warwick was known to have “gone mad” at his wife’s death and decided to live in this huge mansion all by himself. The villagers reported that he would also be often seen dressed up as his wife in a red dupatta and singing love songs while galloping on a white horse at night. 

Even after his death, Warwick’s spirit has been reportedly seen around the village in the same dupatta on a white horse. Villagers say Warwick became the ghost protector of Jeolikote and wards off evil from this quaint place.

Going around the Warwick Estate, one can not help but feel an eerie sense of abandonment of love lost. The bungalow now belongs to a businessman from Delhi but is mostly left empty with moss covering the cracks in its walls. A local man is the appointed caretaker of this unoccupied bungalow, that may never be truly “empty”!

8. Kuldhara Village (Rajasthan)

By Pamela Mukherjee | Every Corner of World 

Most Haunted Places in India

While visiting Jaisalmer, I didn’t miss the opportunity to visit one of the most haunted villages in Rajasthan called Kuldhara. The village is about 20km from Jaisalmer and very popular as a cursed village among the locals. It is said that In the late eighteenth, Kuldhara was possessed by the rich and well off the network of Paliwal brahmins. Kuldhara is the biggest of a group of 85 towns that this network is spread out in. 

As per the legend, the evil eyes of Salim Singh, the debased Minister of the state, fell on the little girl of the town head and he wanted to wed her forcibly. He undermined the town with grave results in the event that they didn’t hold fast to his desire. The young lady’s dad rejected as he was from a lower standing. The Minister was enraged and allowed a 24-hour final offer to the young lady’s dad to adjust his perspective or there will be consequences… 

Thus it so happened that the occupants of Kuldhara and the other 83 towns took what they could with them, covered the rest, and left their town in the dead of the night, never to return. The individuals of Kuldhara additionally abandon a revile that no one could ever have the option to live in the town until the end of time, and whoever attempted to uncover the riches would live to think twice about it. 

Time passed. Days turned into weeks, months, and afterward decades. The spirits of the individuals who had been compelled to forsake Kuldhara additionally come back to the town after their death. Following two centuries neighborhood government began to take a shot at this bounteous town. Not many houses are “remodeled and reestablished”, visitors allowed but strictly during daylight hours only.

9. Three Kings Church (Goa)

By Smita Singh

Most Haunted Places in India

During my last visit to Goa, I decided to explore villages of South Goa. So, I took a tour with Blive to visit Cansulim village situated in the Mormugao taluka . As a part of the tour, one of the stops is The Three Kings Church. The panoramic view from the place is breathtaking of the Arabian sea. This is a location of many secrets and is considered to be a haunted place by the localities as the three kings are buried beneath the chapel.

The Blive tour guide was a localite from the Cansaulim village so his stories were daunting and first hand. On Cuelim hill is situated this desolate church. So the story is from the Portuguese Era, and about power thirst of ruling this place by three kings. Due to the agenda of conquering this place, they caused a lot of distress amidst the locals of the village. In the rage, one king to destroy the other two and captivate the place invited the other two competitors for a royal dinner to incapacitate them. 

As a plot, the plan was to poison the food and of course, the plan worked and two were dead due to poisoning. The locals got informed about the brutal act of the king and started to chase, in the act of rescue, the king also ate the poisoned food. Later the villagers buried all three kings in the grounds of this church. To nullify the negativity of the place, locals celebrate the Three Kings feast every year during winters.

As per the leader from the live, locals report of hearing strange sound after dark and it’s believed that the spirits still hover around the place. Though believe it or not, there is something to set the uneasiness inside you. The quaint beautiful white color church sets the spirits looking for an adrenaline rush in the body. Nevertheless, if you dare to visit this, its should one of the wish list for your next goa travel.

10. Dow Hill Death Road (Kurseong near Darjeeling) 

By Debjani Lahiri | The Vagabong

Most Haunted Places in India

Darjeeling, always a favorite hill station among Bengali’s and is known as Queen of Hills . It is also associated with many ghost stories, which are haunting and as well as bone-chilling. And, Kurseong is another picturesque small hill station about 30 km from the main town Darjeeling. Unlike Darjeeling, Kurseong is not overly crowded and people often head there for a peaceful tranquil atmosphere, which is away from a maddening roar of tourism.

Dow Hill Road near Kurseong is one such stretch of road between Dow Hill and Forest Office which is  also known as Death Road . It has been termed as one of the most haunted places in India, and believe me when I say so, there are real-life experiences of people and a lot have stated about the paranormal activities, which takes place in the dead of night.

But, Dow Hill in Kurseong is infamously known for ghost sightings quite often. More so, passerby through this stretch often visualizes a red-eye staring from behind and it gives a constant eerie feeling of being watched. Locals have reported several blood-chilling accounts of a young headless boy walking on the road and disappearing into the woods.

In fact, through the dense forest people have also experienced a dead grey woman walking past several times. Legend has it that there were innumerable murders that took place in this forest area.  

All these instances definitely create an evil aura about this place and many people who have witnessed this are said to have lost their mental balance to a point of even committing suicide.

I am sure there are plenty of more places that have such haunted experiences or stories. I would like to hear all about them. If you have liked this post, do comment below of such places if you know of any?

What a spooky collection! I haven’t encountered anything paranormal on my travels and I hope I don’t! In Calcutta, there’s Putulbari and the South Park Street Cemetery that always have a load of creepy stories about them. Also, Hastings House where people have reported the sightings of a ghostly horse-drawn carriage.

'  data-srcset=

Actually that being said … Kolkata needs a seperate post all together to list down all spooky tales .. thanks for the read though

'  data-srcset=

This is really cool, great stories

'  data-srcset=

Loved this interesting collection of spooky tales. Have added all of them to my list, hopefully will travel to each one day ?

I know right .. that’s why I didn’t dare to write it myself because I am scared a bit ..but ya deffo intrigues me ..

'  data-srcset=

Even though I am scared and a big fattu, this definitely makes an interesting read. All these spooky stories are really awesome. Now I know the places where I should not be visiting ?. Just kidding. Every story was better than the previous one, absolutely amazing.

Ask me how much i was scared to compile this ..haha joining the club of phattu too …but ya stories intrugued me too .Glad that u liked my post

'  data-srcset=

I have been to Dumas Beach, Surat. I did feel uneasy at night. Though I visited it during my MTV show and there were the crew and other people. I also visited Kuldhara village in Rajasthan. But, during daylight, it feels quite normal. Loved reading about other places though.

'  data-srcset=

I am big fattu kind of Girl and even don’t dare to be alone at Night! Being in Surat, visited Dumas beach but Itchanaburi and Morgan House looks so spooky! Loved reading about all the interesting Places.

I stayed in itachuna so I know what Ishani wrote ..where I didn’t dare to write . Such haunting times still exist .. india is vast ..glad u contributed with ur stories

'  data-srcset=

Woow such collective stories are really giving me goosebumps. I have to visit many places mentioned here and only to wait a good time to start my journey again, as a few places are near to Delhi.

'  data-srcset=

What a spooky collection! I have been to a couple of them including Kuldhara at midnight! What I feel, it’s those stories that make you more uncomfortable and not the place itself. ? Probably I’ll change my views if I see some more such places. ?

Yeah I am coming up with another spooky collection from diff parts of the world ..thanks for appreciating

'  data-srcset=

What a wonderful article. Have been to so many places in this list but never had any spooky experience but aap aao kabhi Rajasthan main, aapko leke chalte hai aisi jagah jo internet par nahi milengi waha hogah spooky feel ?

Rajasthan toh hai hi spooky jagah ka aakra .. god how badly I wanna come there I only know

'  data-srcset=

I never thought of travelling to find haunted places. Good to know there seem to be a lot of options if we return to India one day. I love that there are often one or more tales (or folklore) about the places in India. If I was superstitious, I too might be worried about carrying curses back home with me. But sad that some of the stories keep people from visiting some of these places with interesting stories. Even if there are sometimes ghost sightings!

Yea to each to his own .. people who have experienced it can only tell the story .. For us it will always remain a mystery

'  data-srcset=

Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? I know that I do! The Morgan house looks lovely! That poor soul of Mrs. Morgan- may she find peace. 7 foot tall human remains! What? That alone just gives me goosebumps. It sounds likes there is a lot going on around here. I enjoyed these stories and history that you had shared. My favorite story was the story about, Kuldhara Village.

'  data-srcset=

Spooky yes right. I am not a great fan of visiting haunted places myself but I did read about these amazing places which I must say. I did hear about the Morgan House on my visits to Kalingpong when I lived in Calcutta and even though it has the haunted element it looks amazing as a property. I would like to visit the Three Kings church in Goa though ( but during the day ) Thanks for sharing a very unique post and carry on with the great stories.

'  data-srcset=

I’ve been to India three times, but there are still so many places to see. I would need a one year vacation to see all the places in India from my list. Darjeeling is on the top of my list. So, I would love to see this Dow Hill Death Road. I was in Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb, and I admit that it is a magical place. I like ghost stories, so your list is perfect. I hope to visit also Morgan House in Kalimpong.

'  data-srcset=

I love a good ghost story, off-beat history and traveling India so I just had to let you know how much I enjoyed this post. I’ve spent some time in Delhi and did the Golden Triangle, but I would have added some of these to my itinerary if I found this earlier. I already want to go back to India, so this gives me some inspiration!

'  data-srcset=

I’m not really fond of spooky stories but I totally enjoyed this article! Wow! The Skeleton Lake or Mystery Lake looks stunning despite its story! Spooky stories might sound terrifying, but your stories are really good and interesting. I didn’t even know that these kinds of places exist! Thank you so much for sharing!

'  data-srcset=

So many creepy stories and places! I don’t think I’m brave enough to spend a night at the Morgan House or probably visit any of these places after dark. ? But I would love to see Skeleton Lake and all of these during the day.

Yes that skeleton lake is indeed very interesting to witness ..

'  data-srcset=

I have heard so much about Bhangarh but have never managed to get there. A friend swears that she lost all her pics from there when she was in Bhangarh but the camera worked properly and all the images reappeared after she came back! Kuldhara was a tad bit melancholic for me. I would love to see Roopkund lake – ready to battle the little sleeplessness for it. Lovely list of haunted places.

'  data-srcset=

I don’t know about the other’s. But I’ve stayed at Morgan House. And night’s there don’t seem to end. It’s definitely a thrilling experience to stay there.

'  data-srcset=

Oh damn! This list is so crazy. I love haunted places so much, I want to go and explore each one of them now. Bookmarking this list now! Thanks for compiling this.

'  data-srcset=

Wow.. It’s great to find so many haunted places in India for thrill-seekers.. great spooky stories behind the places.. Its nice to find mention of West Bengal..!!

Thank you so much ..have u been to such places ??

'  data-srcset=

I was in India only once. My family and I go to the Goa ( https://goavilla.in/ ) and spent here two weeks. It was amazing!

Itachuna Rajbari- A Royal Retreat, West Bengal India

avatar

West Bengal is no wonder a place that bears testimony of the rich past of the Zamindars, the feudal lords. Their glorious life, royal lifestyle, luxurious living can be seen writ large on the mansions or “Rajbaris” as they are called in Bengal and some of which stood against the test of time. Some of these Rajbaris are now turned into heritage properties with the present generation living miles away in foreign lands. My first trip of 2020 with my friends was to one such beautiful palaces of Bengal named Itachuna Rajbari, situated in Hoogly district of West Bengal. Here I must mention that if you have seen the Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh starrer movie Lootera this is the exact palace where the entire shooting took place.

Itachuna Rajbari- A Royal Retreat, West Bengal India

Since our last year’s all girls’ trip to Bolpur Shantiniketan was a hit , we were determined that this thing should be kept going. For our girls’ trip we always select a place which can be easily reachable, that wich takes less travelling time and also a place which is safe for girls. And what can be a best place other than Itachuna Rajbari. There was one hurdle which is we need to do prior booking before reaching Itachuna Rajbari and that’s were we took a big risk as the rooms were quite expensive.

#itachunarajbari #royalbengal #westbengaltourism #kolkata

How to Reach Itachuna Rajbari

Itachuna Rajbari can be reached both by train or by car. It is around 70kms from Kolkata. If you are traveling by train take any Bardhaman main line bound train or Memari/Pandua local from Howrah Station and it will take hardly an hour to reach. You need to get down at Khanyan railway station which is next to Talandu Station and from there hire a toto rickshaw to reach Itachuna Rajbari. If you book the Toto it shall take Rs 50. To reach by car you need to go straight from Kolkata to Durgapur Expressway via Vidyasagar setu and proceed towards Bardhaman.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

A little history about Itachuna Rajbari

Itachuna was also called as “Bargee Danga”. The name is derived from the word “Bargee” which refers to the Marathi warriors who attacked Bengal for collecting tax centuries ago. Many Marathi warriors later settled down in Bengal and flourished in trade and later became Kundus of Bengal from Kundans of Maharastra. According to the official website Itachuna Rajbari was built by the ancestors of Shri Shafallya Narayan Kundu in 1766. The Rajbari spreads over 20 bighas of land and the terrace itself is of 10 bighas. On arrival we were received by the office staff and they explained to us about the lunch, dinner and breakfast timings and various other activities that we can participate during our stay. Prior bookings are mandatory if you are planning to stay in the rajbari.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

A royal stay at Itchuna Rajbari

All the guest rooms inside Itachuna Rajbari are located in an area called as “Andarmahal”. The rooms are named after various Bengali names used to address relatives for example Boropishir Ghar, Thakumar Ghar, Bodo Boudir Ghar, Choto Boudir Ghar, etc and the room tariffs varies accordingly. Just as we entered through the main entrance the beautiful “Thakur Dalan” caught our attention. Here three times Puja is offered to their “Kul Guru Shreedhar Jeeu”. First in the morning at 6:00 am, then 10:00 am and the evening Araati at 5:30 pm. Ever year two main festivals Dol Utsav and Janmastami are celebrated on a grand scale in the palace.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

Along with great hospitality, food was also exceptionally great. In the evening a guide was arranged to let us know more about the place. I came to know most of the facts about Itachuna Rajbari . But before we went around with the guide we had our own small tour around the palace right after lunch as we had nothing less to do and we didn’t want to spend sitting inside the room. The palace has some marvellous locations for photography. So it can serve as a good location for photo shoots, but I am sure you must take prior permission for that.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

Our Guide narrated us about the history, showed us around some rooms in the palace like the main hall where dance, music etc. were organized for the entertainment of the landlords. He also told us that the irons used in the construction of the house were bought from abroad, at some places Italian marble were used for the floors, the wood used in the rooms and all furniture are made of wood bought from Burma and glasses are from Belgium.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

A 300 years old Shiv Mandir lays just outside the palace gates on the opposite side of the road which was in fact within the campus years ago. But due to the sudden death of a family member on the day of a Puja no more Pujas are conducted in the temple, later a Shiva Linga was constructed outside for devotees. There are also some mud cottages at the backyard of the palace for guest accommodation. These looked quaint and perfect. But to get the real feel staying in one of the palace rooms is highly recommended.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

The palace also has provisions for day trips that can be arranged on prior booking but for day trips a group consisting of 15-20 members is required. They don’t allow groups less than that to even enter the premises of the palace.  In the evening we attended the ‘Araati’ and then went to the Cha-Ghar, a place in the backside of the palace allotted for enjoying evening tea along with soothing flute music. There were also lots of activities for recreation like Badminton, Cheese, Carrom board, Table-Tennis to enjoy. We enjoyed two rounds of carrom and badmintion after years and had a great time.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

It is also believed that Itachuna Rajbari is one of the most haunted palaces in West Bengal but with God’s grace we didn’t encounter any ghosts but yes there was something eerie about the whole place. So many stories, untold tales must have been buried within the huge pillars. It is so grand and majestic that we were awe-struck just at the first look of the palace. Everything looked like a scene out of some historical movies showing how grand and luxurious life these rich landlords must have lived. Next day after a delicious breakfast we checked out of Itachuna Rajbari with bag full of memories and camera loaded with photographs.

#itachunarajbari #westbengaltourism #kolkata

On way back we took the same route and reached Khanyan Railway station and booked three tickets for the next local train upto Serampore station and we had plans to explore this old town which is a pre-colonial city on the banks of river Hoogly. Let’s keep Serampore for the next post. Hope you liked reading about this post and would love if you feel free to like and share. Thanks

বুলবুলিতে ধান খেয়েছে খাজনা দেবো কিসে?"

এই ছড়া শুনে বড়ো হওয়া আমাদের।আর এই ছড়ার মধ্যেই লুকিয়ে আছে ইটাচুনা রাজবাড়ির ভিত্তির ইতিহাস।কোনো বাঙ্গালী বনেদী পরিবারের সম্পত্তি না এই বাড়ি।বর্গী উত্তরসূরী " সাফল্য নারায়ণ কুন্ডু "এই বাড়িটি তৈরি করেন ১৭৬৬ সালে।

ফিরে যাই সেই অস্থির বাংলায়।যখন বারবার মারাঠা যোদ্ধারা বাংলায় আক্রমণ করেছিল,লুট চালিয়েছিল টানা প্রায় দশ বছর সেই সময়,চৌথ আদায়ের জন্য। ঔরঙ্গজেব এর পরবর্তী মুঘল সম্রাটরা চালু করেন চৌথ,যা একপ্রকার খাজনা বিশেষ।মুঘল সাম্রাজ্যের ভগ্নদশার সুযোগ নিয়ে মারাঠা যোদ্ধা 'ভাস্কর পণ্ডিত ও রঘুজি ভোঁসলে' আক্রমণ শুরু করে বাংলায়।

Watch full Itachuna Rajbari video with detailed plan, food and history -

বিজয় নারায়ান কুন্ডু ১৮৯৬ সালে বাড়িটি পুনরায় সংস্কার করেন।কুন্ডু ফ্যামিলি রমরমা ছিল ব্রিটিশ পিরিয়ডে লর্ড কর্নওয়ালিশের সময়।

পরবর্তীকালে বাড়ির সদস্যরা সিদ্ধান্ত নেন বাড়িটিকে 'Heritage Home Stay' করবেন।তাতে লোকের ভালো লাগা র দিক  যেমন থাকবে এতবড়ো বাড়ির সংস্কারের খরচও উঠে আসবে এর মাধ্যমেই।

'তবে তাই হোক ' সিনেমার সেই দৃশ্যটার কথা মনে পড়ে যেখানে অভিনেত্রী স্বস্তিকা মুখোপাধ্যায় পড়ন্ত বিকেলে অপূর্ব একটি বাড়ির ছাদে গালে হাত দিয়ে কি যেন ভাবছেন বা 'লুটেরা' হিন্দি সিনেমাতে দেখা গেছিলো সারা বাড়ির নানা দৃশ্য।  'কৃষ্ণকান্তের উইল' সিনেমা জুড়েও রয়েছে এই বাড়িই।  তা সে ছাদই হোক বা বাড়িটি,বড়ো টেনেছিল আমায়।

বিশাল পরিধির এই বাড়িতে আছে বাহির মহল,অন্দরমহল,কাছাড়ি বাড়ি, ঠাকুর দালান,নাচ ঘর,রান্না ঘর,অতিথিশালা,খিড়কি পুকুর ও পিছনে খামার বাড়ি।নাট মন্দিরে শ্রীধর জিহুর পুজো হয় দিনে তিনবার নিষ্ঠা সহকারে কুলোপুরহিত দ্বারা।

সেযুগের রাঁধুনীদের বংশধররাই আজও রান্না করে চলেছেন।স্বাভাবিকভাবেই রান্না ও পরিবেশনা পুরো রাজকীয়।  কাঁসার বাসন,পাথরের বাটি,পাখার বাতাস,এক ঝটকায় যেন ফিরে যাওয়া অতীতে।ভাত, লুচি,শুকতো,ডাল,ভাজা থেকে শুরু করে মাছ,কচি পাঁঠার ঝোল,চাটনী ও দই সহযোগে এলাহী আয়োজন।দুপুরের দিকে একপশলা বৃষ্টি হয়ে গেলো।

tachuna Rajbari-Heritage Hotel-Weekend Trip - Haunted Rajbari-Itachuna Rajbari Food Tariff

তবে এই বাড়ির কিন্তু ভৌতিক বাড়ি হিসাবে সুনাম আছে।অনেকেই নাকি ঘুঙুরেআওয়াজ,আর্তনাদ,দরজা নিজে থেকে খোলা ও বন্ধ হয়ে যাওয়ার কথা শুনেছেন। যদিও আমাদের সে সৌভাগ্য হয় নি।তবে বাড়ির তত্ত্বাবধানে থাকা লোকেরা রাতে বিশেষ বেরোতে দেন না এটা ঠিক।সন্ধ্যার পর থেকে গা ছমছমে পরিবেশ সেটা অস্বীকার করার উপায় নেই।

রাত গড়িয়ে সকাল হলো সিঁড়ি দিয়ে ওঠা সাবেকি পালঙ্কে শুয়ে।সকালে ঘুম ভাঙলো বাঁশির সুরে।এটা এ বাড়ির রীতি।ঘরের লগোয়া বারান্দায় ছিল সকালের চায়ের ব্যবস্থা।চলছে নিত্যপুজোর আয়োজন।অন্দর থেকে দেখা রোদ ঝলমলে সকালের বাহির মহল।

অনেক ভালোলাগা নিয়ে ফিরেছিলাম সেদিন।আর এই ভালোলাগাকে রেখে দেবো স্মৃতির মণিকোঠায় সারাজীবন।

Itachuna Rajbari: A Stay to Remember

The rise of heritage tourism has led to a simultaneous surge in restoring historical properties into vintage hotels and homestays. Such heritage properties, which carry within itself endless tales of the past, paint a vivid picture of our culture and essence and present them evocatively to the guests. We already have another blog-post on one of the happening heritage sites, The Denmark Tavern of Serampore. This time, we take you to the Itachuna Rajbari.

The Itachuna Rajbari is one such example, which extends an unforgettable vintage experience to its guests. And owing to its vicinity to Kolkata, it is also a perfect destination for a weekend staycation.

Location of Itachuna Rajbari:

The Rajbari is located at the nondescript village of Itachuna, near Pandua town of Hooghly district.

How to reach Itachuna Rajbari:

Itachuna Rajbari is located just 70 kms away from Kolkata. We are listing below the best options for travelling to the Rajbari:

  • By car: A 2-hour’s drive from Kolkata via the Delhi Road is probably the best way to reach the Rajbari. Kalyani Expressway may also be availed; however, this route takes more time.
  • By train: The nearest rail station is Khanyan. Any Burdwan bound mainline train or Pandua/Memari local train from Howrah station can be boarded to reach Khanyan easily within 1.5 hours.
  • By bus: No direct bus route exists here.

History of Itachuna Rajbari:

The history of Itachuna Rajbari can be traced back to the annals of the Maratha marauders who plundered and wreaked havoc in Bengal and were locally called “Bargee”. Many such Bargees, instead of returning to their homeland, settled in prosperous Bengal. One of them was the Kundans, who established them at erstwhile “Bargee Danga” (as Itachuna was known then), converted to Vaishnavism, and undertook the surname of Kundu and became local zamindar. The Rajbari was built in 1766 AD by Sri Safallya Narayan Kundu and was renovated to its present avatar in 2012 by the 14 th generation of the Kundus.

The Itachuna Rajbari:

The Itachuna Rajbari is built amidst greenery, on a sprawling 8 acres of land and surrounded by orchards, gardens and ponds. The Rajbari is palatial, and is divided into 3 distinct parts:

Bahir Mahal

  • Dev Mahal, or the temple area.
  • Andar Mahal, or the interior section where the womenfolk lived and which was off-limits to outsiders.
  • Bahir Mahal, or the exterior part where the men of the house carried on with their day-to-day works.

On entering the Rajbari, the grand “Singha Duar” or main entrance takes away all the attention. The Bahir Mahal is spread on the two either sides of the entrance.

Singha Duar

The most striking feature of the Rajbari is, perhaps, the Dev Mahal, which is the first to greet on entering through the entrance. Shri Sridhar Jeu, the ancestral deity of the Kundus, resides inside the temple. There exists a large courtyard right in front of the magnificent temple, where devotees still assemble during Dol – Utsav and Janmashtami.

Thakur Dalan

A petite door on the right of Dev Mahal is the doorway to the Andar Mahal. This portion also has the kitchen and dining areas.

Andar Mahal

The current generation of the Kundus continues to live on the premises and only a small portion of the two-storeyed Rajbari has been converted into a heritage homestay. The rooms have been named after different relations in a family, ranging from grandmother and aunts to uncles and brothers. Interestingly, rooms, which are situated in Andar Mahal, are named after female relatives; while those in the Bahir Mahal have been given names of the male ones. There are 7 categories of rooms available here:

Room

  • A. Category – A+: There are 5 rooms under this section:
  • 1. Boro Boudi
  • 2. Choto Boudi
  • 4. Boro Pishi
  • 5. Choto Pishi
  • B. Category – Maa: 3 rooms fall under this division:
  • 1. Ginni Maa
  • 2. Boro Maa
  • 3. Mejo Maa
  • C. There are few uncategorized rooms:
  • 1. Kaka Babu
  • 2. Pishemoshai
  • 3. Jatha Moshai
  • 5. Ananda the Sabha Ghar, a large hall available only for those who are planning a day trip here.
  • 6. Bilash and Manjari: 5-person suite rented together for guests visiting in groups.
  • 7. Bungalow: Recently, the Rajbari has launched a private bungalow, named “Dev-Probha”, which can be booked for 3 families.
  • 8. Huts: 4 mud huts have been built inside the garden to provide guests with a village-like ambience: Aparajita, Madhabilata, Kanaklata and Jhumkolata.

Verandah

Rooms can be checked and booked from the official website of the Rajbari at http://www.itachunarajbari.com/ . You can also drop them a mail at [email protected].

Along with an unforgettable experience of heritage stay, the Rajbari also offers a delicious food escapade. Aiming at giving a taste of the royal feast to its guests, the Rajbari offers a complimentary breakfast and meal plan for one person at INR 600/- which includes both lunch and dinner. The meal plan serves vegetarian dishes; however non-veg items such as fish, chicken and mutton are also available at extra cost.

The food is quintessentially Bengali and plated on shining brass utensils that exude the vibes of the past. The food portion is ample for one adult and the dishes are delicious. The ghee and ‘mishti doi’ of the lunch platter are homemade and lip-smacking.

Meal plans at INR 300/-, which include lunch and tea, are also available for those who are opting only for a day out. Children’s meal plans are also there.

Experience:

The Itachuna Rajbari aims at offering a taste of royalty to its guests. The entire Rajbari is decorated and furnished in such a way to exude the old world feel. The rooms are provided with traditional furniture such as king-size, four-poster beds and decorative closets. The seemingly endless verandahs and corridors have been embellished with antique pieces and intricately designed furniture. The walls have paintings and photographs of the ancestors of the Kundus. An entire day may not suffice to explore every nook and corner of the Rajbari.

Corridors of Itachuna

The huge garden surrounding the Rajbari is perfect for taking an aimless stroll after feasting on the elaborate lunch spread. There is a pond in the backyard, where fishing can be done.

Pond

The Rajbari authorities organize daily guided tours in the afternoon. The guide narrates the history of Itachuna, while walking the guests through here, there and everywhere of the Rajbari.

Terrace

The evening arati at the temple is, perhaps, the most beautiful event during the entire stay at the Rajbari. The divine smell of incense, the sound of bell, cymbal and drum, the chanting of ‘mantras’, the lighting of candles on the temple stairs – all create a heavenly atmosphere in the evening.

Evening

Another memorable experience is a flutist playing earthy and pleasing tunes on his flute in the early morning, which serves as a gentle wake-up call.

Nearby attractions of Itachuna:

There are some places of interest near the Itachuna Rajbari, which can well be visited during the staycation:

  • Hangseswari and Ananta Basudev Temples of Bansberia, which is just 20 kilometres from Khanyan.
  • Terracotta temples of Guptipara, which is an hour drive from the Rajbari.
  • The 108 Shiva temples of Kalna, can be reached within an hour from Itachuna.

Fantastic but sadly no ghosts

We recently stayed for 2 days at the Rajbari. We got the Thakuma and Bara Pishi rooms on the first floor. The rooms are big and full of antique furniture like bed, coaches, cupboards etc. but in good condition. The bathrooms are attached and with modern fittings. There is nothing much to do except roam around the rajbari, involve in fishing in the adjacent pond or fly a kite. Hence if you are in a group, you will enjoy more. Food is served at the ground floor and limited to Bengali cuisine only. Though very tasty, they do not have any a-la-carte menu and you have to order thali every time you have a meal. This we found a little stiffening, especially during dinner when we would have liked chapatti and chicken curry only. They can also do a barbeque for you if you order one day in advance. The food is not expensive and service is very good. Itachuna, perhaps is one of the few places who serves prepared good quality tea rather than the ubiquitous tea bag trash that is served everywhere in the name of tea. The place is not far off from Kolkata. It’s a pleasant 2 hrs drive via the Durgapur Expressway. The road condition is also good. I would recommend a weekend trip to Itachuna if you want to laze around in a 200 year old building with all the creature comforts. However, if... We recently stayed for 2 days at the Rajbari.

I heard of this place from few of my neighbors as this is just 25 km away from my in-laws house. So I went there with a much expectations. And this place is enough close to that expectations. Now come to the "rajbari"... I think this is a grea business idea which is executed even better. Frankly speakibg this palace has nothing unexpected to offer but if you have big group of friends or family then it can be a great place for " adda" through whole evening and night. If you a bit inquisitive then in afternoon you can go for a village walk. On one day prior request they can arrange for bonfire and barbecue which is whole new experience for city dwellers. A person from near village come to play flute every evening and night which is a great experience. Now I come to the most amazing part of this visit and that is FOOD. Every single item we ate was just mindblowing. It was simple but super tasty. If I go there once again its only because of that typical bengali food. All the staffs are very efficient and helpful. For the people from Kolkata this place is a apt night stay after a long drive. My suggestion would be go there in big group otherwise its a bit boring in evening.

I'm originally from Kalyani.. its a hour drive from there.. The Itachuna Rajbari is perfectly located using google maps.. The rooms are very decent enough.. The lime light of staying here is food.. probably just have some great bengali food one can stay here!! Yes it is right.. I hardly recall any other place serving better food than here.. Mutton meal is must try.. The place is may not be so eye catcher in naked eye.. but the moment u start seeing it through your lens, things changed!! This red bricks are so picturesque.. For someone who loves photography this can be a good one day workshop.. Love to come back again just to try food again :)

itachuna rajbari haunted

Pros: *2 hrs train ride from Kolkata * a little offbeat destination * lovely accommodation, in door games, the walk around the property is also amazing *food is superb, but needs to be ordered in advance * If you opt for an evening barbecue, you might like to go lighter on your evening meals/dinner (go for veg option) * staff are helpful and courteous Cons: *you can only do little during the evening. Hence ,will always recommend this trip with friends or a little bigger group Conclusion If you are a group of families ir friends hunting for a spot close to Kolkata (by train ride or personal car), look no further.

itachuna rajbari haunted

Nearly 100km from Calcutta, in Hooghly districts, lies a beautiful 250-year-old zamindar's castle that has opened its doors to tourists. Near Khanyan railway station on the Burdwan main line, the Itachuna Rajbari is tucked away in a village by the same name. Owned by the Kundu (formerly Kundan) family, the newly renovated structure has retained its old-world ambience. The food is homely Bengal fare that is both delicious and nutritous. The service is excellent and the caring touches include a guided tour of the palace and the early morning and dusk renditions by a local flautist. Imagine waking up in the heart of nature to the twitter of birds and the soulful strains of a bansuri, played flawlessly! A truly satiating experience.

Along with family went to Itachuna Rajbari for a day trip in October, 2014. The only 2 words come to my mind is unaccommodating and inhospitable ! We were supposed to go on a Monday but due to ill-health of a family member we had to re-schedule for a day later, we had to pay penalty as the basis was we were lying , now that is not a customer friendly at all!!! Secondly, when we reached there we wanted to explore the property and we were debarred as we did not carry any email confirming the same ( it was not told to us and the office does not open before 10 am and we reached early, this was all discussed over email etc) which i found very insulting.... The only saving grace was food, can do better with the infra in terms of furniture , really down trodden....

Itachuna Rajbari Palace

itachuna rajbari

Itachuna Rajbari, literally meaning brick and lime palace, was built in 1766 by the Kundu family who supposedly descended from the Bargis, the dreaded Maratha clan who invaded and looted Bengal time and again annually for a decade (1740s to 1750s). They were originally, “Kundaan” clan but since the time they settled, they embrace local culture and through word of mouth, it has become “Kundu”. In the present day, you can experience living in a heritage house.

A few steps from Kalyani across the river Ganges you will wade into the heritage Hooghly district. People from different places came and settled here. You will find the elegeant monuments of the Portugese colonies in Bandel. Apart from that, you will find heritage of Dutch, French and Greeks. There are confluence of regional races & cultures too. Jains adored the place and even Pathans admired and left their traces here.

This heritage mansion is in thee village Itachuna, originally known as Bargi Danga. After the downfall of Mughal era, after the death of Aurangageb, Marathas became powerful. Many a times they used to attack Bengal , Bihar & Orissa. The erect watch-towers from Singur to Arra, Purulia witnessed the threat of Maratha warriors locally called Bargis centuries back. Bargis used to come, loot and collect taxes. However, many of them never left Bengal and began to settle here embracing local culture. A sect entitled “Kundaan” settled in the remote village of Hooghly now known as Itachuna. They amassed huge wealth and property by their wit and strength. Subsequently they became powerful zamidars /rajas of the locality. Over times they lost their original identity of Kundans , it turned to Bengali title Kundu.. They cultivated Bengali culture, Bengali cuisines, Bengali language and local deities. They became friend , guide and protector of local people here. They were pious and liberal. Their behaviour towards local people became a folklore even heard at the nook and corners of Itachuna. Still, people in the village put them on a pedestal.

The palace was made by ita (bricks) and lime ( chun ) and hence it was called Itachuna Rajbari. The majestic, splendid architecture and structure is intact although it is about 250 years old. Currently, a part of it is being used as heritage-stay.

The Vishnu temple within the palace is another attraction of the palace. Still now the deity is worshipped.

The caretaker of this place was guiding me to the artefacts kept for visitors. When I was exploring the huge property, its nooks and crannies and the rustic stairways at times I thought I was lost and couldn’t remember the pathways, but I was lost for a better reason, I was blissfully disconnected from the urban jungle and digital connectivity. The palace is a self-contained entity. There are rooms for royal families. There are space for amusement and dances. The visiting room has a magnificent outlook .

A night stay here will certainly refresh your mind. If you spend seeing the village from the roof, you will stumble upon delightful oddities, when the afternoon gives way to dusk.

This place is just the perfect getaway if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and scenic weekend. Away from everyday chaos this is the place to just be. The areas around the Rajbari is green and there are quite a few water bodies around it and one within it. It is a perfect place to rest, recuperate, and spend time enjoying nature, good food, and music! Yes, music of the flute variety! There is a person who comes in every morning and evening and he plays the flute. It was a lovely experience and somehow added to the ambience!

In the evening I was provided a tour of the Rajbari and the areas around it.

To sum up, it was a great experience to spend a weekend indulging in history and gorging on delicious Bengali food.

The rooms are pretty good. The experience of staying in a house over 300 years old with so much of history was quite something! At present, mud huts have been built near the waterbody and people can experience night stay even there. The mud hut are each named after different flowers.

The food was excellent. They served Bengali food and the menu is fixed. You can choose between veg and non-veg food. The spread was very good. If you want to taste authentic Bengali cuisine this could be the perfect place and setting to experience it. You get to experience eating on old traditional dinnerwares and feel royal.

If you live in Kolkata and don’t know where to go next weekend, try to visit Itachuna. For more details you can visit the website of the Itachuna Rajbari: http://www.itachunarajbari.com/

Do not visit Itachuna Rajbari if you are looking for hotel-like amenities and modern comforts.

Come visit if you want to meet characters lost in a time gone by in a sleepy little town that houses a mansion full of charm for those that seek it.

Staying in Rajbaris can always be fascinating due to their grandeur structure, rich history and cultural past. To experience a royal staycation, me and my sisters planned a weekend gateway to Itachuna Rajbari. The Rajbari is a perfect blend of vintage and urban décor. We booked Boro Maa and Mejo Maa, the rooms are next to each other with a private seating area, couch and a mini fridge. It’s a suite in itself. The rooms are very well maintained and cleaned. It was a blissful one-day experience to stay in the rooms having well-furnished antique furniture with modern amenities, savour royal-styled Bengali food, cherish the long corridors, courtyard, and art gallery, stroll around the colourful gardens, feel the sacred ambience of the Sandhya Arati, enjoy a musical evening by a flutist, shop handmade jewellery, apparel, and clay products from Prochesta (a shop inside the Rajbari) and of course click beautiful pictures.

SUMMARY: Overpriced, ambiance is great to relax POSITIVES: Friendly Tasty, fresh food; home-like service Dining rm Suites Estate tour Coffee/Tea area. NEGATIVES: Overall maintenance, clutter Walkways Some bathrooms Price Elevator

Itachuna Rajbari one night stay: 1. Excellent ambience with a very nice guided tour of the house. Some part of the house has a haunted feeling at night. Had nice bonfire experience with a large group. 2. Food decorations were done well but the combination of menu items were not right and could NOT be modified as the package had fixed menu. Lot of food is wasted which could have been avoided if the menu is made more flexible and a la carte or buffet instead of fixed package. 3.There is NO room service available ( except for the morning tea) . Considering the wide area of the house, old people may face issue to commute from room to the dinning room with lot of ups and downs even in the same floor. Room service should have been available based on situation. 4. Checkout time was too strict (10 am) and difficult for those who are staying for one night. 5. The worst experience we had was that, in one of our rooms ( Borda) at first floor there were severe electrical connection issue which caused electric shock in the bathroom tap. We found a copper wire was kept open which was touching the metal tap. If the boarder did not realise this before using it, this could have turned into a dangerous disaster. Would request authority to take serious action against this and make sure this kind of issues are addressed before handing over the room to boarder.

Excellent hospitality with an old world charm around it. We loved here every bit. Great staff. Good food. Light on tummy. Rooms were very clean. Greenery all around. We were a party of 5 adults and 1 child and everyone was looked after with individual attention. A local artist has a shop at rajbari and we purchased a souvenir from there.

itachuna rajbari haunted

We visited Itachuna Rajbari ( near Khanan railway stn ) on a Saturday. ( it is a zamindar bari , popularly known as rajbari). Reached there by car, which took us around 2.5 hours ( with a comfortable halt as well). It was a mildly hot day and we were greeted with a refreshing welcome drink. For lunch we had traditional bengali thali. In addition, for Non-Veg sides we had to order ala-carte. ( pabda machher patla jhol was lip smacking. The fish was very fresh and large I size. Catla maach in sorshe was equally good). Not to forget, the veg dishes were equally sumptuous. We had taken 2 premium rooms - Boro Boudi ( the best in the house) and boro pishi. Once we stepped inside the zamindar bari, we felt as if we had stepped back into the bygone eras. The floors, doors, windows , rooms and their bed posts everything was maintained to provide the guests a feel of the zamindari era. ( do remember to read up on the borghis from Maratha before you visit this place). In the evening and morning we got to hear a flute rendition which added to the ambience. The Thakur dalan is beautiful and the sandhya- arati there at 6 pm makes the atheist also feel closer to god. Overall ambience is peaceful and serene. Special mention: everyone of the staffs in Itachuna Rajbari is extremely hospitable and polite. We were floored by their simplicity and kindness. Whether be it in the dining area ( aha- re) or anyone within the curio shops or even the ladies cleaning your room. Kalyan Babu from the kachari is a very diligent manager of the estate who ensures guests are well taken care of and are comfortable. Our recommendation: Itachuna Rajbari’s USP: the food and hospitality

From 1866 to 1868, Warren was the most prosperous mining town in Northern Idaho . Then, in 1874, Chinese miners dominated the mining industry and further developed Warren until 1876.

Pierce Idaho Ghost Town

Pierce idaho mining towns

Captain E.D. Pierce found Pierce as he led a group in search of minerals. Pierce marks the beginning of Idaho’s gold mining as one of the state’s first mining districts. 

Life still exists in Pierce. In 2019, the town’s population had 553 residents, according to the United States Census Bureau. A notable building is the Pierce Courthouse which is a historical reminder of Pierce’s mining days. 

While Pierce is not technically a ghost town, it is notable since it is one of Idaho’s first mining towns . When in Pierce, tourists should visit the Pierce Courthouse and the J. Howard Bradbury Logging Museum.  

If you happen to be in Idaho in August, consider visiting Pierce during their “1860s Days,” an event hosted by the town to celebrate its beginnings and contribution to the Idaho gold rush. 

Placerville 

placerville idaho ghost town

Placerville is one of the gold mining towns discovered during the Idaho gold rush. In 1862, Placerville, along with Idaho City and Centerville, were the top Idaho mining camps. Early days attracted thousands of residents to Placerville, but Idaho City later surpassed Placerville due to its long-lasting water supply in the spring. 

Placerville is one of the old mining towns in the Boise Basin where remnants of the district still exist.

Silver City Ghost Town

silver city idaho

Silver City is one of the mining towns that didn’t burn down. Fortunately, the mining town survived through the 1875 California Bank Failure and, during that time, managed to produce a yield of about $40 million. 

Visiting Silver City is like “taking a step back in time” due to the vast historical buildings that still stand. In particular, the Idaho Hotel is a notable attraction that appears as it did 100 years ago.

De Lamar Ghost Town

de lamar idaho historic town

Joseph DeLamar, a former sea captain, established De Lamar in 1888 and cleverly named it after himself. His creativity quickly paid off as the town grew to great wealth and prosperity due to large silver deposits that were uncovered in the nearby Owyhee Mountains.

De Lamar experienced tremendous success in a short amount of time, but when the mining industry began to dwindle, many residents left in search of employment and more prosperous prospects. The situation worsened further after World War I as plummeting silver prices caused an additional exodus from De Lamar. Ultimately, these departures led to its ultimate abandonment by 1914.

Despite some buildings enduring the test of time, many have been reduced to ashes due to fires. The De Lamar area currently encompasses an expansive 1,600 acres and is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.

Rocky Bar Idaho

When miners searched for more gold outside of the Boise Basin, they found the Rocky Bar. Rocky Bar was a mining camp, and it, unfortunately, closed down during the war in 1942.

Rocky Bar is truly a ghost town that brings frequent visitors every year. A notable tourist attraction is the Rocky Bar Masonic Hall that George Golden rebuilt in 1892 after it burned down.

Leesburg Mining Camp

leesburg idaho mining town

Miners found Leesburg during the mining expansion in Montana. In 1866 they found gold, and 500-600 miners decided to settle in Leesburg. During the camp’s mining days, they reached a population of about 2,000, and in 1868 they produced $100 million in gold. 

Not much remains in Leesburg except some dilapidated buildings. When there, you will see plaques that contain photos and historical information about the town.

Custer and Bonanza Ghost Town

Nestled on the westernmost edge of Salmon-Challis National Forest, you’ll find Bonanza and Custer Ghost Town. All that stands between you and this historic destination is a 20 minute drive down Route 75 until Sunbeam, then followed by a left onto Yankee Fork Road. In no time at all, these creepy ghost towns will come into view to your left!

In 1878, Bonanza and Custer Ghost Town were established as two distinct towns that eventually became one due to their close proximity. After the General Custer Mill revealed to be a wealth of tetrahedrite, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite, towns sprung up around it in no time. The mine fueled its inhabitants for years until early 1900s when miners decided to seek more lucrative prospects elsewhere.

The majority of the remaining structures are well-maintained, creating an opportunity for tourists to take a step back in time. Detailed maps and informative historical markers can help you gain further insight into this town’s past.

In addition to the many preserved buildings, visitors can also take a short walk up from the ghost town and explore one of America’s best-maintained gold dredges – The Yankee Fork Gold Dredge. It is certainly worth seeing!

Bayhorse Ghost Town

Step back in time and explore the mining past of historic Bayhorse Ghost Town, one of the most well-preserved ghost towns in Idaho! Here visitors will uncover a range of sites such as charcoal kilns, cabins, a cemetery and even an old saloon – all near pristine Salmon River.

The Bayhorse Ghost Town, nestled beside Idaho’s Salmon River, was once home to miners who were on the hunt for gold and silver. When locals first established it in 1877, there weren’t many inhabitants – but when news spread of their mineral findings, residents began flocking in droves!

As the town expanded, so did its requirements. To make transportation of minerals easier, citizens constructed an aerial tramway to wagons. Unfortunately, tragedy struck a few years later when part of Bayhorse Ghost Town was set ablaze. Shortly after this incident there began a scarcity of water which further eroded the town’s population until it was deserted by the 1920s and never recovered from its devastation.

Cariboo City

caribou mountain ghost town idaho

Miners arrived at Cariboo Mountain on Sept. 8, 1870. Residents named the town after Jesse Fairchilds, better known as “Cariboo” Fairchilds, because of his work in the Cariboo mines in British Columbia. Most of the Cariboo Mountain mining camp burned down in 1885, and, sadly, it was never rebuilt. Even though very few structures remain, visitors can still explore the mining ruins.

Chesterfield Ghost Town

When exploring the numerous ghost towns of Idaho, you can often sense a peculiar and eerily spooky feeling. After all, that’s why they’re called “ghost” towns! Yet in spite of its title as an abandoned settlement, Chesterfield is surprisingly peaceful. Visiting this place is an experience unlike any other ghost town. Walking through the restored log cabins, constructed in 1881, you can feel a profound connection to the past and appreciate all of the care that went into creating this beloved community during its peak years.

In 1881, Mormon settlers chose to establish the town without prompting from Church authorities – a decision that was unique among many other Mormon settlements of the time.

Wickahoney Ghost Town Ruins

Idaho’s southwest corner is the perfect paradise for anyone seeking untamed beauty, from endless stretches of sagebrush and breathtaking basalt canyons. But in this region lies a forgotten secret — Wickahoney, an abandoned town that hides many stories within its ruins.

Although it may not seem so today, Wickahoney was once a flourishing stop along the route from Mountain Home, Idaho to Mountain City, Nevada. This path served as an important supply line for the mines in northern Nevada and saw many lively travelers pass through its quaint little station.

Thousands of adventurers traveled to Idaho dreaming of finding their fortune in the state’s booming mining industry. From these humble beginnings, entire towns were built – however, many eventually failed as miners moved on once gold and silver had been extracted from the ground. Today, all that remains are ghost towns like this one – testament to a bygone era when individuals risked everything for potential riches. Once a busy waypoint between booming mining settlements, Wickahoney is now nothing but crumbling remains left to the relentless march of time and nature.
