Uttarayan Complex

Museum in Shantiniketan

This beautiful complex thrown around tree-lined avenues, gravelled courtyards and exotic gardens boasts several buildings built in architectural styles varying from art deco to rural Bengal. Once the residence of Rabindranath Tagore, the complex now houses a few offices of the university, as well as a museum and an art gallery that are both worth a peek if you are a Tagore aficionado. Reproductions of his sketches and paintings are sold here from a publications sales counter by the main entrance.
