Visited a tons of times. The ambience of the place. The old world charm, the serenity of the Ganges and memories of the past. Want to go back to that time.

If marine drive is known as the necklace of Mumbai, the strand is also the necklace of Chandannagore. To speak the truth very few cities in the country are so lucky to have one such strand. The strand is about 750 metre long , so walking up and down one may cover 1.5 KM walk . The strand is provided... More

The Strand is the heart of Chandannagar, which stretches about 1-2 kms alongside the holy Ganges river. It is a lovely place for hanging out with friends, family or even just with yourself. In numerous banyan trees with benches placed at regular intervals to give you shade and rest. Great place !!!

A winter morning or an autumn evening here with your beloved is probably the one of the most romantic time-frame you can have in your entire lifetime. Having said that, it... More

The Hooghly Riverside strand bears the signature of the French colonial rule in Chandan nagore since mid 17th century. The promenade is a popular destination among locals for an afternoon stroll. The area is well maintained and upgraded to carry the heritage. A nice place for tourists to observe the french touch in the area.
