You should definitely go to see a cricket match in this famous Eden Gardens Stadium. The crowds are over enthusiastic, the energy electric and spoilt for choice over food though quite overpriced. But the energy is beautifully contagious!

The Jamindar of Burdawan built this garden so that Bengal's elite along with Anglos could play Cricket as Indian were not allowed in the clubs those time. Do visit this place during one of the IPL matches and you will be able to see the passion of Bengal (people as far as Siliguri come)

By far one of the best cricket stadiums in India I have visited. If you are a cricket lover and are in Kolkatta you can't come without visiting it.

always a place to go if any international cricket match or IPL is going on. Amazing to view around 70k people watching, cheering and enjoying. Only constraint is there are many typical old minded people who would like to sit and watch the match without any noise. For them ideally they should be at home and not at the stadium.

It is a real experience to watch cricket being played at Eden Gardens. The atmosphere is awesome. The food is sold under the stands. Great place to watch cricket.
