Know Your Host
Itachuna Rajbari has an interesting history to it as it was built by the so called ‘Bargis’. Bargi comes from the Marathi word Bargir. Bargis were Maratha soldiers who have a history of attacking and looting Bengal countryside. After the battles were done over in the course of time, some Bargis or Maratha soldiers settled in Bengal. One of these Bargis was the Kundans and they settled in Bengal and came to be known as the Kundus. The Kundu family built for themselves the Itachuna Rajbari. This piece of history makes it one of the best heritage stays in West Bengal.
To maintain the glory of royal heritage palace, the present inheritors of the family Mr. Rabindra Narayan Kundu, Mr. Dhruva Narayan Kundu and Mr. Basav Narayan Kundu decided to restore the property and coverted it into the heritage homestay.
