Maharshi Debendra, father of Rabindranath Tagore, founded an ‘Ashram' here in 1863. Almost 40 years later, Rabindranath started an open-air school at Shantiniketan that gradually developed into an international university named Visva Bharati where the cultures of the East and the West may meet in common fellowship and thereby strengthen the fundamental condition of world peace.
Santiniketan is a famous town situated near Bolpur, in the Birbhum district of West Bengal. About 180 kms from Kolkata, the place was once the abode of Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore.
