More than 100 years back the area was inhabited by the cinchona planters. They build several bungalows in typical British architecture. Half a dozen or so are still habited mostly by the locals. A few of the bungalows are today let out as homestays. One such bungalow is Bungalow number 6, the owner has named the homestay here as 'Sai Hridayam'.
The bungalow is situated at the heart of Takdah town, just 50 meters uphill from the Takdah market.
