Sagar Island (Bengali: সাগর দ্বীপ) lies on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal about 100 km south of Kolkata. It belongs to the Republic of India and is governed by the State government of West Bengal. The island is large — with an area of around 300 km². It has 43 villages and a population of over 160,000.

This Sagar Island is a famous Hindu pilgrim place. Every year on the day of Makar Sankranti (mid of January), thousands of Hindus gather to take a holy dip in the Ganges and offer puja in the Kapil Muni Temple.
