GeographyEdit

Bally is located at 22°39′N 88°20′E / 22.65°N 88.34°E / 22.65; 88.34 and also the northernmost part of Howrah city.[3] It has an average elevation of 15 metres (49 feet). It is more elevated in the west than the east (where flows the Hoogly river), thus leading to a problem of water logging.[4] Bally is separated from Uttarpara, Hooghly by Bally Canal (Bally Khal) at its north. A Bridge was constructed over Bally Canal in 1846 to join the two localities.[5]
