  • Once it was away from the main city now its within the city. The sanctuary is easily approachable from Vishwabharati but from the main road it is very difficult to reach here when you take a left turn on Amar Kutir Road due to narrow and uneven road. There is virtually no parking for vehicles here. However, the sanctuary staff are very cooperative and answer all your queries. It's very quite here and its a good place to visit with children so they can experience a fraction of wildlife. Wouldn't recommend to visit here in summer and rainy season. Also do not forget to bring drinking water along with you.
  • This place are famous for Deer reservation. In Bolpur area this is one of the peaceful area. A tourist spot of this locality
  • This place is beautiful. Here you can find Deer park. This is just beside Santiniketan.Overall it may be enjoyable for your quick visit.
  • Pure peaceful and nice area....You can touch the pure natural silence from this area....
