This is one place in the busy streets of Kolkata where you can find peace and tranquility inspite of being located just a few yards from the main road.. The ghat of the Ganges is just the place where you can spend hours together with your loved one... For refreshment, there is ample option of chats, cold drinks, games etc...

Just at the banks of the river Ganga,its suitable for all kind of people visiting with family or friends.Even if you have got nothing to do you can just spend time sitting down at the river bank and having a nice long chat session with accomplices.

A nice place to enjoy the calmness of the Hoogly river where you can go for ferry to have a walk on Howrah bridge. This bridge view also also very cool from here. I've enjoyed sunset here and nature beauty.

We went to Kolkata to enjoy Durga Pujo Festival. The morning at the Princep Ghat is a secluded place and is a must visit for every traveler in Kolkata. The Hooghly River flowing gently and the mighty Hooghly Bridge (Cable Suspension Bridge) overlooks the Ghat. The memorial built is the major attraction of the ghat.

The restored Princep Ghat is kept very clean unlike some of its neighboring place. Its very beautiful in the evening when the lights come on. The kids will enjoy the park and the history stories behind it. There are many options for quick snacks. Do bargain withe the boatmen before a ride on the river.

Went to kolkata and not enjoyed a ferry ride across the ganges and below the howrah and vidyasagar setu bridge. vening time or early morning trip is very enjoyable. Good entertainment for people of all ages. The ganges can be accessed for its holy rituals from this location.
