Fodor's Review

A few minutes' drive outside Shantiniketan, Sriniketan is an extension of the university campus; it's designed to help locals provide for themselves by creating stunning handicrafts—colorful batiks; intricate embroidery on saris, scarves, and bags; and terra-cotta items, including jewelry. Here you'll find some of the most beautiful and exclusive craft items in Bengal.
