This is one of the most premier institute for study of Arts. This place is full of memories of the famous Rabindra Nath Tagore and several other famous artists. Must visit when in Santiniketan.

This will give you a feel of peace. If you visit her you can feel the difference between Shantiniketan and rest of the world.

Wonderful place except the ticketing arrangement. Long que before you enter and very slow moving. That is the only irritating part of the tour. The Museum and the houses where Gurudev used to stay is just amazing.

Serene place to hang out with friends. So much to see and learn from the land of Tagore. Kala bhavan.. Brahmo Samaj and the museum are the important places.

I think there is no facility to have an official guide from Viswa- Bharti, but there are plenty of private guide whom you will found near entrance. Charges must be negotiated accordingly.
