Mukutmanipur, West Bengal

No one knows what or where the heaven is. But one will surely en­joy heavenly pleasure, if he stays at Mukut­manipur in a moonlit night. Staying arrange­ment is there at the top of the hillocks at Mukutmanipur. After crossing the lock gate of the Kangsabati dam on the river Kang-sabati, there is the inspection bungalow, the Kangsabati Bhaban and the Youth Hostel. The barrage on the rivers Kumari and Kang­sabati is 10098 m in length and 38 m in height, the area of the dam is 86 sq km. The dam is surrounded by hills.

This small hamlet in Bankura could be the perfect healing place for your weary soul. A giant lake with deep blue water, an open-air temple and a small forest with rare birds make it an ideal destination to satisfy weekend wanderlust.
Mukutmanipur is situated on the confluence of the rivers Kumari and Kangshabati at the Bengal-Bihar border. It’s a little-known fact that Asia’s biggest earthen dam is in Mukutmanipur, constructed in the early 1970s. The tourist destination grew around the dam.
The 86-sq-m lake provides an irresistible temptation to take a boat ride. One side of the lake is rocky and draws the border between Bengal and Bihar, while the other is dotted with green patches, part of the Bangopalpur reserve forest.

The 11-km-long and 38-m-high dam has a solid concrete road with wide pavements.

We took a boat ride in Kangsavati to see the Dam in the evening and to enjoy the the scintillating view of Kumari and Kangsavati River.

Our Mukutmanipur-Vishnupur Journey on 12-13 Nov 2005, is one of the memorable trips that we have ever had. It’s complete in the scene, that we had seen some fascinating natural beauties of Mukutmanipur, had a small boat journey to see the dam of river Kongsavati, enjoyed the comfort in the luxurious resort, the enchanting Saotali dance, the majestic sculptural beauty of cultural Vishnupur and not to mention the music sessions of some extraordinary talents and prodigies with Jojo’s guitar. Unequivocally, we all will cherish these days of joy and great enthusiasm in future.
