This scenic tourist spot is situated at the convergence of three well-known rivers of Howrah- Rupnarayan, Damodar and Hooghly. All these 3 rivers unite in Gadiara to create a vast area of water body with the cities like Geonkhali, Haldia and Nurpur located at their banks. All of these towns look illuminated with twinkling lights in the evening and this magnificent view can be enjoyed from Gadiara from the other side of the river. It can be a perfect weekend retreat which you can spend in gazing at the boats and enjoying the dusk on the river.
