Venue: About Swabhumi, Kolkata


Kolkata a busy yet lively city, has quite a number of things to offer- whether it is the food, the ambience, the heritage or above all the cultural melting pot. The Swabhumi Heritage Site, Kolkata is located on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass (opp. Salt Lake Stadium), the main arterial read of the city and on the way to the airport. It is 4Km from the Park Circus connector and 30 minutes away from the heart of the City and adjacent to Subhas Sarovar Lake.


Located on a natural hillock, visitors are welcomed by its warm ambience with natural beauty and an undulating landscape with lush greenery. The site is ideal to induce a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the mainstay city life. The colorful heritage plaza is considered to be one of the best in eastern India. Swabhumi stands out as a hub to bridge the cultural diversities of India with a showcase of arts and crafts from the various Indian regions with a special focus on Bengal and its heritage.
