  • A Treasure of Bengal. Many published book is the key of british India. Memoirs of Asiatic society are very much valuable. I am very much enriched by the publication of The Asiatic Society. This institute is very much helpful for social science researchers. It was founded in 1784 by Sir William Jones. The location of this institute is very good. This is also very good landmark on park street.

"The Asiatic Society" has publication department(Since 1788), museum, two seminar halls also. A large number of famous person visited this library till date and appreciated. * source: "Bhraman Sangi"
