Zaminder Bari At Nandirhat
Satya Saha, a national award-winning musician, composer, lyricist, and director is the son of this zamindar house. Satya Saha was born in 1934 in this zamindari dynasty. This house of zamindar Laxmicharan Saha was built in 1890. He and his two other brothers started zamindari in the area. After the abolition of the zamindari system, this zamindari fell. At that time the people of the zamindari dynasty lived a luxurious life. They used horse-drawn carriages and well-equipped palanquins for going out and traveling. In that area, it is now known as Satya Saha’s house. This zamindar bari covers a huge area.
Apart from Satya Saha’s house, there is also a puja mandapa and a paved pond ghat. There is a family crematorium on the bank of the pond. In the middle of 1975, Satya Saha produced his Bengali film ‘Ashikshit’ – which was shot in this zamindar house and continued to shoot for 17 consecutive days. This zamindar house with its history, heritage, and monuments is currently on the verge of destruction due to carelessness, neglect, lack of necessary renovation, and preservation. Sri Sri Nistarini Kali Mandir of Hindus is located on the east side of the main road in Nandirhat Bazar. After visiting this zamindar house, Hindus can go there.
