The most memorable place in our visit to Kurseong was Netaji Institute for Asian Studies. All Indians feel proud for Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose whose contribution to freedom movement of India is beyond any question. We visited the House of Netaji at Gidhapahar which is a few kilometers away from Kurseong Station and is not a popular place for travelers to visit. The house is situated among the local place having some residences around. Originally this house was bought by the elder brother of Netaji Late Sarat Chandra Bose in 1922. Very recently West Bengal Govt decided to develop the House and convert to Netaji Museum and Institute for Asian Studies. When we visited the place, the construction was going on and we were charmed to get inside the house and visit the places where Sarat Chandra Bose and Netaji stayed when they were interned by British Rulers. All visitors of Kurseong and even the tourists going to Darjeeling must visit this place and spend at least one hour to pay homage to the great freedom fighter. The beauty of the place around is also very charming. My request to the Management of the Institute to allow photography inside the house for public interest.

Situated on top of Giddapahar, just about 2 km from the city centre is a majestic wooden bungalow which belonged to the Bose family. The Bengal government in 1995 requisitioned the house and opened it as the Netaji Subha Chandra Museum. I must say that it is indeed a very rare and humbling experience to visit a place that has been lived by the undying legend ( he spent close to one year in this place when he was interned by the British Government) and that preserves the personal artifacts and most importantly a lot of personal communications with his wife, Emily.
Sadly, the local people living by the side of the museum are almost unaware of this museum. If you are doing a site seeing, please keep at least Two hours for this historic treasure trove if you want to see the collections at least to some extent. I recommend this as a must see for all trips to Kurseong....

Located approximately 2km from kurseong town on Girdha pahar this museum contains Bose memorabilia. With all the current and past controversies associated with this Great man's life this place is worth a visit.
