Cooch-Behar

Cooch-Behar , West Bengal

Situated on the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas this is a city which lies in the state of west Bengal and makes a fine additions to the state. The largest city of the district with the same name, Cooch behar is a developing place with the beauty of the wonderful Himalayas throw in. Thus it is a city which is quite hard to resist. Once a princely state of Koch during the British ruel, it bears the hallmarks of a very glorious past yet is making strides into a very bright future. Cooch Behar is a city which you will find, has a heart. The Torsa river flows by the western side of town. One of the most beautiful rivers in the Himalayan range, it is as much a boon as a curse. This river causes many floods in the city and adversely effects crop production in this region too. The change into an urban city ahs also taken its toll with rampant deforestation and an increase in the pollution of this place. What was once a beautifully lush forest is now constantly dwindling due to the rising demand of timber. This is one place which is in dire need of some preservation. A city of smaller Paras or communities you will find friendly people all over and quite an easy way of life here. Cooch Behar is home to a number of district-level and divisional-level offices and has a large government-employee workforce. Thus this place remains extremely important to the whole country. A city which is striding towards the future, it still retains its roots and essentially remains a very warm Bengali city.
