Glimpses of Shantiniketan

While in India, we travelled to Shantiniketan, a small town 180 kilometers from the city of Kolkata. Shantiniketan is where Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore grew up and wrote some of his most acclaimed work. Shantiniketan has turned into a university town, and attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Here are a few glimpses of Shantiniketan.
{Vendors selling handmade crafts all over the town}
{A temple with gorgeous glass walls}
{The instruments of a baoul, or wandering minstrel}
{A bell hanging in the shade of a banyan tree}
{The rope-like branches of a banyan tree}
{an old house -- remainders of a period of grace and elegance}
