Sealdah with Howrah constitutes two important railway divisions in
the city and around. The much busy railway station has had a good
influence on the entire locality. Very characteristic of the city,
the place of Sealdah is congested and supports a great population.
Bow Bazar, Entali and Tal Tala are some important regions
The site of Sealdah like Howrah and Dum Dum witnesses a large
number of travellers. The Sealdah rail division is the prime
attraction within its precincts. The suburbs like any other
commercial area has adequate number of schools, hospitals, banks and
other important offices. The only scene that stands out is to be
seen at the railway station. For some people with no homes and no
where to go the station is the last resort. A good population of
such people can be seen hovering in the region. The place also
houses the Railway Museum which exhibits antiquities relating to 150
years old railway service.
