West Bengal, which situated in eastern India, is known as the fourth most populated state of India. This is a state with variety of civilizations, cultures and great geographical establishments. This state is surrounded by different countries like Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh, so it has adopted other religion’s culture too and it reflects on Bengal’s festival. Its capital Kolkata is a metropolitan city bearing its own history for hundreds of years. Since epic Mahabharata, British Emporium it has left its own identity in Indian history. It has a touch of Bay of Bengal and a peak of Himalaya too.

For example a huge area of the north side of West Bengal is carrying gardens of tea leaf which is famous worldwide as “Darjeeling Tea”, Kolkata –which is situated at the side of Hooghly River, was a key point of business, but West Bengal made another side of prospect which is tourism.
