Private Tour: Temples & Ashrams Of Ganga Sagar Day Trip From Kolkata

Immerse yourself in India's religious heritage and humanitarian
culture on this full-day private tour to Ganga Sagar, an important
Hindu pilgrimage site on Sagar Island for travelers from all over the
world. With your expert and passionate guide, visit various temples
and ashrams including Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Ramakrishna Mission,
Kapil Muni Temple and Omkarnath, and discover the inspiring role of
Hinduism and Hindu saints in the philanthropic efforts of the various
organizations housed there.

Spend a day away from metropolitan Kolkata and embark on an
enriching, enlightening journey to the city of Ganga Sagar on Sagar
Island. After pickup from your hotel in Kolkata by private
air-conditioned vehicle, head approximately 80 miles (135 km) to
Kakdwip. Along the way, your expert guide will explain the history of
the area as you admire beautiful views of India's landscape. When
you arrive, board the local boat with your guide and enjoy a 30-minute
cruise on the Ganges River to Kachuberia on Sagar Island. Then, board
your private vehicle and listen to your guide's informative commentary
about the region on a 40-minute journey to Ganga Sagar. Arrive in
Ganga Sagar around noon. For lunch, you may choose to enjoy a meal you
have pre-packed yourself or, at your guide's suggestion, visit any one
of the small hotels in the area for a traditional Bengali meal (own
expense). Spend the rest of your day with your guide exploring Ganga
Sagar and discovering its incredible religious heritage. First, visit
Kapil Muni Temple, dedicated to Hindu sage Kapil Muni, and learn how
this is one of the most important and most widely visited temples on
the island. Then, visit several religious sanctuaries that house
local philanthropic organizations. Follow your guide to the ashrams of
Bharat Sevashram Sangha and Ramakrishna Mission, both charitable
non-governmental organizations in India, to learn about their
humanitarian projects for helping impoverished rural areas in India.
Lastly, visit the ashram of Omkarnath, another charitable organization
dedicated to spreading the mission and teachings of Bengali saint
Sitaramdas Omkarnath. After your tour, you'll be taken by private
transport and ferry back to your hotel in Kolkata.
