Its CHRISTMAS ! A sure time for the area to enjoy to the fullest. It is Ballygunge Christian Para. This is a small community of Christian families. This settlement is about 100 years old. Not many are aware about this tiny Christian Para (area) in Ballygunge, in the southern most corner of Kolkata. From Ballygunge Phari if you come down to Bondel Road, opposite Deys Medical Factory you would locate a lane, besides the Shiv Temple. Come through this lane…. You are at Ballygunge Christian Para. Now a days it is easier to locate because of two high-rise buildings that came up recently i.e. Orbit Sky Garden and Asha Towers.
The Christmas celebration centres around the small church here. Earlier this was a mud walled church with tiled roof, until recently when a two storied church building
came up. The celebration is not limited to Christians only, all communities of the locality happily participate in various activities like decorating the area etc.
Come…. Join the celebration !
The church entrance has been decorated with a nativity display which attract good crowd.
Mukherji family has an elaborate christmas decoration with a lots of coloured lights !
