Love the architecture and the area around it. A respite from the crowded city that seems like its crumbling on to you.

One of the few buildings that has been and is being restored. Lots of interesting paintings inside but it is the outside that is especially lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I prefer to visit Victoria early morning 5AM-7AM. You will find people come here for morning walk, Yoga, Pranayam etc. You can try horse chariot outside Victoria. The museum is also worth visiting.

Icon of Kolkata. British Architecture showcase. It is maintained still. One can go inside the Hall at specified days/time. But most of us take a tour outside the Hall within the campus.

Lord Curzon conceived it. Presently it is the finest and... More

If you are in Kolkata then this is a must see. Fantastic building set in beautiful grounds. Provides a glimpse of the best that the British left behind in India. The gardens provide a beautiful and relaxing break from the noise and busyness of the city. We came here just before sunset and was the perfect time to enjoy the... More
