The Portuguese set up a factory here even as early as 1537.Chunchura, the district headquarters was originally a Dutch settlement which was exchanged in 1825 for the British-held Indonesian island of Sumatra. The Armenian Church built in 1695 and the Octagonal Church built in 1678 are the main attractions here.The nearest airport is Kolkata's Dum Dum airport, which is nearly 25 km from Chunchura.
