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.
