Under the Banyan Tree: The Forgotten Story of Barrackpore Park


Monabi Mitra, Soumen Mitra

The story of Government House, once the Governor-General’s weekend retreat near Calcutta, then the Viceroy’s. It’s also the story of its occupants. After Independence it became a Police Hospital and then fell into decay; the book has been prompted by a recent restoration of the main house and park.
