Government General Degree College, Nakashipara.


Muragachha, a village situated within the Nakashipara block, boasts a rich history spanning five centuries. Originally documented as 'Raghabpur' during the "Nadia Raj" period, it holds significance in the region's historical records. Its subsequent renaming to 'Muragachha' occurred over time. During the British colonial period, Debi Das Mukhopadhyay, the dewan of NimakMahal, played a significant role in constructing landmarks like the Sarvamangala Temple, Gopinath Temple, and the DurgaMandap, known for its antique gothic architecture. His contributions also include the NahabatKhana (a raised platform for musicians), the Raas Temple, and the Sarvamangala Library, which are esteemed traditions in the area. His son, Jagat Chandra Mukhopadhyay, established the Muragachha High School (now H.S. School) in 1858, which has been nurturing students ever since. Muragachha and its neighboring areas, such as Dharmadah, Bohirgachhi, and Sadhan Para, hold historical significance in the context of the freedom struggle. Late Gopendranath Mukhopadhay (Bada) played a pivotal role in organizing revolutionary activities in this region. Notable figures like Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, and Pandit Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar have visited this village. Additionally, Martyr Basanta Kumar Biswas was a student of the aforementioned school. The local community longed for a college, and their aspirations were fulfilled with the establishment of Government General Degree College Nakashipara. The college stands on the grounds of the school stadium, which was handed over to the Government of West Bengal for this purpose. Situated approximately 2 kilometers from Muragachha Railway Station and 1.5 kilometers from NH-34, the college campus offers a serene atmosphere and is accessible by rickshaw, tuktuk, van, and bus. The efforts of Late Gopendra Nath Mukherjee (Chota) and Late Panchu Gopal Banerjee were instrumental in the establishment of the college, and the present generation continues to contribute admirably to its development.
