Durgapur Barrage, Durgapur Overview

One of the prime attractions of the city, the barrage is built to control the overflowing Damodar River in the monsoons. The barrage also connects Durgapur with Bankura.

This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Durgapur. This structure keeps the flow of River Damodar, notorious as 'Sorrow of Bengal', in check. The structure and the adjoining bridge offer a breathtaking view for the visitors who arrive at this place. Apart from Bhabani Pathak's Tilla, which finds its mention in author Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay's classics Durgesh Nandini and Bande Mataram.
The place isn't just a beautiful sight but can also be a memorable experience. A local boat can be hired and you can go out into the water. If you have more time, then you can even spend the sunset on the shore.
