  • Big difference between whatever found n our expected.just few birds r in jheel .Very dirty place ,no proper resturent found in nearby. Big avoid
  • Santragachhi Jheel is a large lake, located next to the Santragachhi railway station. This lake attracts large number of migratory birds in the winter months, particularly in December and January. The number has increased in recent years, as migratory birds have started to avoid destinations like the lakes in Alipore Zoo, Kolkata.
  • Very good place. But now a das it's polluted
  • Beautiful wetland in the city of Howrah. The place is famous for migratory birds those visit this place in winter. However the local people and the Govt or the Municipal body seems to be very less bothered to protect the bio-diversity of the wetland. Local peoples are eager to dump household wastes to the lake and make it dirty. It seems to me that the lake is crying!!
