    Chandernagore

    In Chandernagore we saw lovely small buildings at the riverside.
    These places are very favourite. The local people liked to visit and to sit here for some time with a nice view at the river.

    Bandel,  the Hooghly River

    In Bandel are beautifull views at the Ganges river. There is a lot of green along the river.
    We enjoyed the rustic and peaceful atmosphere of this area, just a few KMs north of city Calcutta.

    Streets in Bandel

    From the tower of the church of Bandel you have a nice view at the lifely streets of Bandel.
    In the streets a lot of rickshaws were waiting for new customers.

    Bandel, church

    The church of Bandel is decorated with a shield "Shrine Basilica Bandel 1599''.
    So if you don't know which church you are visiting -I couldn' t find anything in my guide-book- the shield helps you.
