How to Reach Saha Institute Of Nuclear Physics

# Airport (Pre Paid taxis are available at airport)

Both the domestic and international terminals of Kolkata Airport (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport) is situated further North/North-East of Salt Lake. The Airport is more popularly known as Dum Dum Airport. One has to take Nazrul Islam Sarani (erstwhile V.I.P. Road) or Jessore Road from the airport to reach the city. The N.I. Sarani actually originates from near the airport and leads to Ultadanga. The distance from airport to Ultadanga through V.I.P. Road is around 8 K.M. Coming from airport, down the V.I.P. road towards Ultadanga, one has to pass through a place called "Kestopur" (around 5 K.m. from the airport). After Kestopur, till Ultadanga (the remaining 3 K.m.), one fringe of Salt Lake City runs parallel to V.I.P. road, de-marketed by a running canal called "Kestopur Canal". Unfortunately no bridge for vehicular traffic is in existence to connect VIP road and Salt Lake over the Kestopur Canal. There are a few foot-bridges. For this reason one has to go till Ultadanga Crossing; form here you have to turn left to enter Salt Lake satellinte Township. You have to continue straight up to CAP ( Central Armed Police Camp Office ) from where you turn left to reach the road beside the canal. There-after turn right to reach the main gate of SINP.
