48 Kms South of Calcutta, Diamond Harbor so named by the British, is a popular excursion spot for the locals where Ganges bends south on its way to sea becoming wider and deeper allowing big ships to dock. Originally known as Hajipur, this charming spot was renamed Diamond Harbour by the British. It was a stronghold of Portuguese pirates and the crumbling walls of their fort remain along the Hoogly.
