Holy Monks of Gangasagar

Sagar island is an island in the Ganges delta, lying on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal & the largest village is named as Gangasagar. As this is a coastal region the trade and business here depend on the sea and the sea-product like shells, fish etc Although this is an pilgrim place so the life of the people here is tourist & pilgrimage associated. but rest of the year when there is no festival they spend a tough life. As a sustainable travel place this place should attract the attention of people
