The station mainly serves the adjacent areas of the famous Babughat/Babooghat - originally known was Baboo Raj Chandra Ghat - built in 1830 by Rani Rashmoni in memory of her husband Baboo Raj Chandra Das (zamindar of Janbazar). The imposing colonial structure with Doric-Greek style pavilion & huge pillars will mesmerize the viewers. But sadly, like most ancient ghats of Kolkata this one is also in a state of decay and derelict. But still Babooghat ghat is bustling with crowds since morning till late evening with people who use it for bathing, puja, religious ceremonies, massage and leisure.
