Experience The Tranquil Wilderness

A ruin city - Sundarbans’ history dates back to 200 - 300 AD. It was established by Chand Sadagar who also created the Baghmara forest block. Originally, the forest was a source of refuge for criminals - escaping from the Mughal Emperor - Akbar’s army.

A cosmic, mysterious jungle - Sundarbans is home to the Royal Bengal Tigers who rule the world’s largest mangrove. Painted by the clear blue skies, muddy terrain, and lush green waters - the impenetrable forest is named after the endangered Sundari tree. Sundarban is a portmanteau of the words Sundar (Beautiful) and Bans (Forests). It is a spectacular tangle of an astronomical jungle bordering two influential nations - India and Bangladesh.

Local Flavours

Sundarban’s ethnic community is called The Mundas. They have a vast cultural diversity that revolve around unique rituals, customs, language and traditions. Their significance is based on the occupational identity and ancestral beliefs. A community known to have hundred years of triumphant history is currently going through an ethnic identity crisis - combined with the Hindu traditions. Currently, the community is locally referred to as Kuli, Mundari and Bunos. The forest dwellers of Sundarbans are defined by their own culture, which is isolated from the metropolitan society.

They observe specific festivals and rituals in the forest - worshipping the Superpower of the Mangrove Forest - Banabibi - who is also considered as the natives’ messiah. Dakshin Rai is considered as the God of the Tigers and is worshipped by natives of all religions. Sundarbans is the inspirational source of many Bengali folk dances, songs and skits. Majority of them focuses on the gods, goddesses and folk heroes of the Mangrove Forest - especially - Dakshin Rai and Banabibi, Chand Sadagar and Maa Manasa from the lower Gangetic Delta.
