Geography :

Hooghly District is one of the resourceful districts of West Bengal. It is completely flat and situated near River Hooghly. The Hooghly River is regarded to be an arm of the Ganges. It is one of the many branches of the river that are collectively known as the "Mouths of the Ganges." Another major river is 'Damodar' which used to flow through Bengal in yesteryears, from west to east course and then it joined the Hooghly River at a spot near Kalna. The Hooghly District is in the South, very close to Bardhaman district in the north which is industrially as well as agriculturally very rich and in the east, lies River Hooghly. There are also two neighboring districts namely Bankura District which lies to the north-west, popular for its ancient monument and terracotta horses, known as Bankura horses and well known for Indian handicrafts, and Medinipur District to the south-west. The administrative breakup of the Midnapore District of West Bengal, led to the western Paschim Medinipur and the eastern Purba Medinipur districts that became effective on January 1, 2002.
