  • This place doesn’t need any demarcation. The buildings are painted with modern art, some illegible scribblings too. Probably the students try to convey their high level thoughts through these works...

  • Nice place. Nice decorated art. If you have minimum interested in art and things than you definitely love this place.
  • Kala means art in Bengali. This part of santiniketan is dedicated to artists and arts. Opens everyday. Some time special show or workshop is organized inside the area. Famous Kala Ghar or black house is located here. It's the boys hostel of kala Bhavan students. Very famous and renowned artists works are preserved here for general public.
  • “Kala” means black in Bengali. It's a black colored typical mud wall house, looks like a primary school in a village. But, I was surprised to witness the original sculptures and painting of my primary school book “Sahoj Path” after half century. Very nostalgic. This is a must-see place for me. My son liked this house very much and he took many pictures of it.
  • There is nothing outside the Kala bhavan -VBU . The safest place in the world .
  • The place of Rabindranath Tagore, the place of art & architecture, the place of peace. An esteem department of visva-bharati, santiniketan, bolpur.
