Kestopur (also Keshtopur), officially known as Krishnapur is a neighbourhood in Kolkata in the state of West Bengal, India, and is covered under the bidhannagar municipal corporation. It lies on Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani, more commonly known as VIP Road, which connects the city with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. The community is made up of people of various religions from different states.Kestopur has over the years become an area of great prominence because of its proximity to areas like Salt Lake Sector V and Rajarhat. Kestopur now boasts of a mall called Bazar 365. VIP Keshtopur crossing was one of the busiest of the Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani. However construction of a flyover along with underpass at the crossing (opened in March 2015) helped in decongested the traffic at the junction.[1] Kestopur comes under North 24 Parganas district.
