Reflection Of The Past ~ :::

Once upon a time, they were rich Zamindars (Landlords) of an undivided Bengal who had moved to Kolkata to enjoy life. Their opulent lifestyle become a part of the city folklore.

Centuries later, their finances are just a shadow of the glorious past, similar to the run-down condition of those palatial houses in North & South Kolkata. Most properties are divided among many and are either a constant source of friction or are being subjected to protracted legal tussles among stakeholders.

They are an integral part of Kolkata’s legacy of  Bonedi Bari ( Zamindar's House ) - a heritage re-visited during Durga Puja. Notwithstanding the strain on their finances, members of many such legacy families still come together to organise the annual ritual, which, apart from other things, include inviting hundreds of guests to enjoy sumptuous meals - a legacy of the opulent Zamindari estates of the past.

Put together, there are so many Traditional Durga Pujas that take place across Kolkata. The most famous Traditional Pujas being those initiated by the Sabarna Roy Chowdhury family (considered the original landlords of the city), the Sovabazar Rajbari (which was graced by Lord Clive) and Rani Rashmoni (founder of Dakshineshwar temple).
“We have stuck to traditions and some rituals have been kept alive through the centuries now,” ~~ By a family member of the Zamindar's family .

Traditional Durga Pujas in Bengali households are an interesting feature of Calcutta's heritage

Some of the households have been holding these celebrations for more than 250 years now and take pride in the fact of how old is their traditional worshipping set up & how the former zamindaars (landlords) of the city spent their Durga Pujas . This is good a oppurtunity to visit these Traditional House .

We ,
A To Z Travels, arranged Traditional Durga Darshan Tour ( Bonedi Barir Pujo ) during Puja days. Such packages include a visit to the household to witness traditional Idols & rituals - worshipping unmarried Brahmin girls or a vegetable sacrifice. There are Trained Guides to brief visitors about the family history or in many cases the same is done by a family senior. Followings are some of the famous Traditional Household Pujas in Kolkata .
