It has been over 100 years now that one Lt-Gov. of Bengal Andrew Frazer fell in love with this place. The gentleman built a bungalow at a place called Narayanitala, a village nearest to the spot he fell in love with. It was a bungalow by the sea, surrounded by coconut groves which has been swallowed up by the advancing sea as years went by. This is Frazergunj a little distance away from Bakhhali, in West Bengal, india. Frazerganj is a hub for small fishing vessels with small time fishermen making their daily living. A mangrove forest presents a unique ecosystem.
