Children's Day Out at Prinsep Ghat

June 13, 2016

Our monthly outing brought us to this Historic Hooghly Riverside Monument, Prinsep Ghat.

 

Prinsep Ghat is a ghat built in 1841 during the British Raj, along the Kolkata bank of the Hooghly River. The Palladian porch in the memory of the eminent Anglo-Indian scholar and antiquary James Prinsep was designed by W. Fitzgerald and constructed in 1843.

 

Located between the Water Gate and the St. George's Gate of the Fort William, the monument to Prinsep is rich in Greek and Gothic inlays. It was restored by the state's public works department in November 2001 and has since been well-maintained. In its initial years, all Royal British entourages used the Prinsep Ghat jetty for embarkation and disembarkation.

 

The Vidyasagar Setu as a backdrop makes for a picturesque venue and has been used for many Film Shootings too.

 

 

Prinsep Ghat is among the most popular Tourist spots in Kolkata and as you can imagine the children along with their teachers and caregivers had a gala time.
