The city is several centuries old and has witnessed both the growth and decline of the feudal system, the coming of the Danes and their settlement and then a cultural renaissance (known as the Bengal Renaissance) initiated by the British following the construction of the east Indian railway, along with subsequent industrial development.

There were three main phases in the process of urbanisation of Serampore:

  1. The Pre-urbanisation phase (the period before 1755);
  2. The Urbanisation phase (from 1755 to 1854); and
  3. The Industrialisation phase (1854 to 1947).

Before the Mughal era, the region between the Saraswati and Hooghly rivers was a thriving local community.

After this, there arose the need for local artisans along with “service class” people who came from the neighbouring villages and settled on granted land. In this way, colonies such as Patuapara, Kumarpara, Dhulipara, Goalpara, Dutta Bagan, Khash Bagan were formed. This along with the fact that Sheoraphuli was a distribution point for local marketable goods produced in different parts of Hughli, induced many families – the Barujibis, Duttas, Deys, Das, etc. – to come to settle here before 1755.

The cultivating classes settled in such places as Sadgoppara, Mannapara, Lankabaganpara. The Jele-Kaibarta and ‘Sani’ Muchi, were already in the locality from the beginning, and had their own areas. The local Sunni Muslims, descendants of Mughal soldiers, traders, and artisans, lived in Mullickpara, Mussalman Para and here a mosque still bears witness to their existence.

During the Mughal period, Akna (today’s Akra Bati Lane) and Mahesh were heavily populated. The hot humid climate of the area suited the textile industry and the local land was well known for its cotton and silk weaving. The Hindu weavers used to manufacture fine cotton pieces, while the Muslim weavers monopolised silk manufacture. In the fertile land, paddyjute and betel-leaf were grown in abundance. The Kaibarta used the marshy land for fishing.

In pre-urbanisation age, communication was mainly by way of the river. Besides this, there was the ‘Badshahi Sadak’ or the grand trunk road. Before Danes arrived in this region, the Sheoraphuli Hat was the main internal trade centre and had close commercial links with Barisal, Khulna, Dhaka, Mymensingh, Rajshahi and other districts of East Bengal (now Bangladesh).

Between the 14th and 18th centuries, many foreign merchants, such as the FrenchPortuguese and Dutch – established their trading outposts, or “Kuthis”, here and were involved in trade and commerce.

The Danish established their city in Serampore as Frediksnagore. City of Fredrik.

Lately Denmark is taking interest in Serampore.
