Gadiara, 90 km from Kolkata, is a small village at the confluence of the Damodar, Hooghly and Rupnarayan rivers. Gadiara is one of the most beautiful and popular picnic spots in Howrah district.
The ruins of Fort Mornington Point built by Lord Clive, and the lighthouse are the prominent attractions. Mayachar, a sprawling sandbank on the Rupnarayan River, is an interesting spot to idle on the secluded beach. Watching the sunrise and sunset at the confluence of the rivers is a wonderful experience.
