This century-old heritage mansion on the river Ganges once belonged to Roy Bahadur Radhakanta Deb, the grandson of Raja Nabakrishna Deb of Shovabazar. Radhakanta Deb (1784 - 1867) was a scholar and an orthodox conservative social reformer. He promoted English education among the Hindus and had a marked interest in agri-horticulture. Therefore this garden property of Radhakanta Deb is witness to the august presence of many contemporary distinguished personalities of the nineteenth century. The record says that this property once had a beautiful waterbody with lots of fish in it. 


During the late 19th century this property was purchased by a British couple with a child. A few years before independence this property was acquired by our ancestors. The open barbeque and dining area was once the changing room for the ladies of the family after taking bath at the Niharika Ghat attached with this property. Idols of Radha-Gobinda made of black stone  (Kashti Pathar) were the family deity of our ancestors.


This heritage house is surrounded by history.  One can go sightseeing to nearby Baro Mandir Ghat, Peneti Garden House of Maharshi Devendranath Tagore (Gobinda Home), Anukul Thakur Satsang ashram, Dakat Kalibari near Mahotsav Tala Ghat also known as Chaitanya Ghat marked by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's footsteps, Kathiababa Ashram, Panihati Rasmancha, ISKCON temple the place where Sri Ramkrishna visited along with Swami Vivekananda, Girish Ghosh, Srimo & others and many other places of historical interest.
