  • Calmness resides over the place in any time of the year. Nice place to visit with family and loved ones. Big ground and full of "Chhatim" Trees. If you stay here for some moments and roam around the university campus leisurely, you will feel "Rabi Thakur" and his songs in your every heartbeat. Local people will ask you about hiring guides. But I would suggest you not to hire anyone. There are many guide books about Shantiniketan and each places which are sold in the streets and book stalls. Now a days cleaning has become an issue. You will find many places which are not maintained well.
  • Maharsi Devendranath Tagore seated here for rest and he got comfort and decide to made a asram here.The place is a heritage site.
  • This place is inside Viswavarati University campus.This a place where nature and heritage meets one another.You can feel the peace if you sit here for sometime. This place is well known as the place for meditation of Late Maharshi Debendranath Tagore father of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore.Here is a old 'Chhatim' tree from which this place was named as.Rabindranath mentioned this place in his writings.
  • Awesome place, u can feel the history of that place, and also u can get very good behaviour from local guides
  • Chhatim Tala is located inside Biswa Bharati University at Shantiniketan, Bolpur, WB. Here Rabindranath started class rooms & tution amidst divine nature. It was all started under a Chhatim tree.
