Photographer's Note

In very early morning. A very foggy sunrise. I took it in Gadiara, Howrah. A very nice place for short vacation.

I am giving a little information about Gadiara :
Gadiara, 90 km from Kolkata, is a small village at the confluence of the Damodar, Hooghly and Rupnarayan rivers. Gadiara is one of the most beautiful and popular picnic spots in Howrah district.

The ruins of Fort Mornington Point built by Lord Clive, and the lighthouse are the prominent attractions. Mayachar, a sprawling sandbank on the Rupnarayan River, is an interesting spot to idle on the secluded beach. Watching the sunrise and sunset at the confluence of the rivers is a wonderful experience.

Launches are available to ferry tourists from Gadiara to Geonkhali via Nurpur. This is a two-hour launch ride connecting Howrah District, South 24 Parganas District and Midnapore District. Gadiara is well-connected by bus from Kolkata and Howrah.

Nearest access points : Howrah Railway Station and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. Accommodation options are available at Gadiara. Roopnarayan Tourist Complex provides good accommodation.
