The first Zamindar in this place was Krishna Das Raychowdhury, who built a Rajbari in Taki. Though most of the his palatial home was disappeared in the Ichhamati river but the ruins are still a crowd attractor like The Old banyan tree and its roots are a must see which is still carrying the essence of Bengal’s heritage and old architecture.
Ichamati River is a trans-boundary river which flows through India and Bangladesh and also forms the natural boundary between the two countries. At the end of Durga Puja , on Vijaya Dashami, the river offers a unique spectacle when boats crammed with people from both countries converge to immerse their respective idols.The local people look forward to the annual reunion on Dashami. On that day, people from both sides of the border hoist their national flags on boats carrying idols and meet across the Ichhamati. The man-made boundary vanishes for the day.
