May 2014: Establishment of Nazrul Tirtha

Nazrul Tirtha (Bengali: নজরুলতীর্থ; Nazrul Pilgrimage) is a cultural and educational center dedicated to the rebel poet Kazi Nazrul Islam. The center is situated in New Town (few meters from Rabindra Tirtha). West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee inaugurated the center on 24 May 2014 to mark the occasion of the 115th birth anniversary of the poet. The design and architecture of the center is said to be unique in Kolkata and bears the signature material of Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier.
