The view of Mutty Lall’s Bathing Ghat
Called after the name of Babu Mutty Lal Seal, ‘the richest and most virtuous baboo of Calcutta’. Mutty
Lall Seal or Moti Lal Seal established this bathing ghat on the bank of River Hooghly in mid- nineteenth century
alongwith other benevolent activities for Calcutta. The bathing ghat is now being neglected, under dilapidation.

  1. This is not Mutty Lall Seal’s Ghat, this is a photograph of Chotulal’s Ghat taken from the old Howrah Bridge.

    1. I am, indeed, very grateful to you Chandranath Babu for correcting my sorry mistake, and for giving me an opportunity to find out and use this replaced image.

      This is of course Moti Lal Seal Ghat , at present, just next to it stands Armenian Ferry Ghat which is providing regular ferry service under WBWSTC (West Bengal Water Surface Transport Corporation).

      1. প্রিয় শৈবালবাবু,
        নমস্কার, পুরনোকোলকাতা ওয়েবসাইটে পাঠানো আপনার মন্তব্যটির জন্যে আন্তরিক ধন্যবাদ। সেই সঙ্গে আমার একটি অবাঞ্ছিত ত্রুটির জন্যে ক্ষমা চেয়ে নিচ্ছি আপনার কাছে। চন্দ্রনাথবাবুর মন্তব্যের উত্তরে আমার নিবেদন পড়লে জানতে পারতেন প্রথমে প্রদর্শিত ঘাটের ছবিটি ভুলই ছিল, পরে সংশোধন করি। পুরনোকোলকাতার আলোচনায় আপনার আগ্রহ এবং শুভেচ্ছার বিনিময়ে ভালোবাসা জানাচ্ছি।
