The Roxburgh Project
Three heritage buildings, an outdoor pavilion, and a ferry
The Roxburgh International Hub Project has been initiated to revitalise the immensely historic Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanical Garden across the river from the great metropolis of Kolkata, erstwhile Calcutta, and to promote it as a leading cultural, educational and leisure destination. The Roxburgh House, Old Herbarium and Old Seed Store, situated on the banks of the River Hooghly, comprise the historic core of the AJC Bose Indian Botanical Garden. The Project envisages restoring and rehabilitating this ensemble of heritage buildings as the core of a reinvigorated public engagement programme, housing interpretation, museum and research facilities.
