About digha

Digha is a town that has developed around a seaside resort in the East Midnapur district of West Bengal. If you ever plan a trip to the cities of Midnapur or Tamluk, don’t forget to add Digha to your itinerary too. \r\n\r\nIn 1780, Warren Hastings had called Digha ‘the Brighton of the East’ for its similarity to the seaside resort in Sussex, England. At that time, it was locally known as Beerkul. Today, modern facilities like the Marine Aquarium and Research Centre have been established here. In addition to the old natural beach, an artificial beach has been developed, some 2 km away and which makes for an excellent trekking trail. This trek has been further beautified with plantations, and at nights, a majestic gate-like structure is illuminated, making the complete scenery look amazing.\r\n\r\nFurther, there is a century old temple of Lord Shiva at Chandaneswar, near Orissa border, just 8km from Digha. It attracts five lakh pilgrims every year, especially during the March-April mela.
