The burning ghat came up in 1827. In 2010 the central government of India rejuvenated and upgraded the crematorium which cost ₹140 million (US$2.2 million). Rabindranath Tagore was cremated here (north Calcutta burning ghat). There is a Rabindranath Tagore Memorial in the crematorium compound which was beautified in the 2010 project.
