The Neighborhood

The house is located on Southern avenue (also known as Dr Meghnad Saha Sarani) in south Kolkata between Lake Kalibari (where the goddess Kali is worshipped), the Birla Academy (where you may enjoy an exhibition) and Vivekananda Park where south Calcutta meets to enjoy street food in the evenings (if you feel adventurous enough, you could also have some).
