Those who are willing to make a trip to both Belur Math and Dakshineshwar Temple in a short period, there ais a better option take the river ferry. The journey across the river takes about 20-30 mts and the fare is Rs7/- per person.

They take about 25 persons in each ferry. These are all country boats, fitted with motors for faster transport.
Those who are fancy free may try this option as many people take it everyday.

Dont' worry this is safe.

Type: Ship/Boat
