Tagore Lodge

Tagore Lodge is located in Mohini Mills, Kushtia Sadar, Kushtia. Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore would live in this lodge sometimes to manage business of his own Zamindary and wrote a number of memorable poems. The lodge has now been turned into "Tagore Museum" and a library was also set up. In total there are seven rooms in the two-storied building. The ground floor houses the museum and library and the first floor can accommodate cultural programme.

The Tagore Lodge, the house that was used by the Rabindranath Thakur, the royal poet. In 1895, Rabindranath Tagore came to Kushtia main town to set up his business. At that time, common Hindu families tend to set up family businesses among the partnership of family members. Tagore patronized his family business and established a private company named "Tagore and Company".

At that time Millpara was the industrial and commercial area to run businesses. So he set up this duplex building as the office of his business named as Tagore Lodge. This building was elongated to the east-west. The main gateway is in the north. Iron made spiral staircase is in the west. At the beginning the business growth was significant.

But later he failed to make revenue and gave up. Now this building was renovated and newly painted by both the governments of Bangladesh and India. A metal made statue of Ravindranath Tagore has been placed there. But the building opens occasionally, when people come here with reference or guest from government official invitation can visit this lodge.
