We have visited the stadium & took lot of pictures. It is allowed for public view through one side on non-playing days & free of cost. Not allowed to enter into the Green lawn, but to stand. There you get a good view of stadium where lot of cricketers played.

Eden is the second largest cricket ground in the world and the largest in India. It holds a capacity over 1,20,000 and has several pavilions. It is the best ground when it comes to some T20 action. This is the home ground of Kolkata Knight Riders and West Bengal domestic team. The ground is well maintained and has good washrooms... More

It was sometimes called as the "crickets answer to the Colosseum". Although the capacity of this stadium was reduced before the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, it still remain as the 2nd largest cricket stadium in the world by seating capacity. This place is worth a visit.

Best know for cricket, Eden Garden needs no introduction. The public garden was developed at the behest of Lady Eden, sister of the then Governor General of India, Lord Auckland in 1835.

For any cricket lover - a visit to the Eden Gardens is an absolute must. The stadium is frequently rated amongst the top 5 by most former and current cricketers and has a certain charm associated with it. Its a massive stadium and during its heydays could pack in a little over 110 thousand people in - imagine the cauldron... More

I visited this place this year for an IPL match. The new stadium is simple stunning. The field looks beautiful in the flood light. This place is must visit for all cricket crazy people. The crowd is good and the frequent mexican wave would make you go crazy.

The uproar when the bowler approaches the 22 yard, the sky perforating noise when a batsman scores a boundary, the lush green that makes you think a carpet has been laid, the pin drop silence when a wicket falls, in spite of thousands present in the ground is what Eden Gardens is. You will not understand any of the words... More
