Babughat is one of the many ghats constructed at some point of British Raj, along the river bank of Hooghly on its financial institution on Strand Road at Kolkata side. The ghat has a tall colonial shape, that is the landing berth of the ghat. It is a quality Doric-Greek fashion pavilion with massive pillars. The ghat, at first recognised turned into Baboo Raj Chandra Ghat, is now only recognised by using first phrases Baboo-ghat or Babu-ghat. Babu / Baboo in Bengali approach Sahib or gentleman.
The ghat is known as after Babu Raj Chandra Das, husband of Rani Rashmoni and zamindar of Janbazar, who constructed it in 1830, in memory of her overdue husband. A marble pill beneath the pediment means that some of the credit for the erection of the ghat should go to Lord William Bentinck as he recommended such spending so that it will improve public amenities. It is second oldest ghat of Kolkata. The pavilion these days is absolutely encroached by using carriers and monks. The vintage colonial shape and stairs main to the river are in numerous stages of deterioration and derelict.
