Chandannagar is a city and a municipal corporation of Hooghly district in the Indian state of West Bengal. The name Chandannagar is possibly derived from the shape of the bank of the river Hooghly which is bent like a half moon (in Bengali, Chand means moon and Nagar implies city), so originally it was chander nagar. From the river bank it looked like a moon-shaped necklace (crescent moon). Chandannagar consisted of mainly three parts Khalisani (west), Gondalpara (south) and Boro Kishanganj (north). Chandannagore Museum and Institute is one of the oldest museums of the region.
Tapas Paul, Bengali actor and Member of Parliament, Ishan Porel, Indian Under-19 cricket player are a few of the notable residents of Chandannagar.
