“Loooong Barrage”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

the longest barrage is South Bengal after Farakka Barrage, the Durgapur Barrage is the jewel in the crown of Damodar Valley Corporation. Built on the erstwhile sorrow of Bengal, the Damodar river in the 1950, this barrage is also a connection between the districts of Burdwan and Bankura.
As one travels from Burdwan side to Bankura side, the stored up water of the river is on the right side and the dry river bed with miles and miles of sand and some water on the left.
The best time to visit if winter, though one should avoid public holidays as picnics revelers crowd the place.
A small picnic with a group of friends, a walk on the river bed sands and maybe a ride on a small country boat make this place worth visiting
