Digha – The Best Weekend Destination in West Bengal
Digha is also know as Brighton of the East. Originally, there was a place called Beerkul, This name was referred the then Governor General of India, we came to know by a letter of Warren Hastings letters (1780).
It is a sea side beach of Bay of Bengal in East Midnapore, West Bengal and one of the most popular weekend destination. Though I went to go to Digha for two reason one Ma Narmada Temple and Chandaneswar Shiva Temple. Chandaneswar Shiva Temple though in Odisha but it is near by from Old Digha. Ma Narmada Temple or Devi Narmada Temple is not very popular since it is new but it is magnificent and sensible people will able to feel the different vibration here. I will shortly cover about this mystique temple.

Train also available from Howrah Station. Normally I am comfortable at night journey to minimize my tour schedule that’s why I booked Bus Ticket.
I was in a small budget hotel near Amarabati Park at new Digha. It was very clean and comfortable. The Hotel Manager Mr Chandan is very cordial and co-operative.
