It is place where even if you do not know much about the game , you can still enjoy because of the crowd and the size of the stadium

Anyone who loves and follows cricket (a religion in India) would need no comments about Eden Garden one of the Largest cricket Stadiums in India ! Has given great Captains and Players to Team India like "The Bengal Tiger" aka Dada Aka Sourav Ganguly and many more.

Been there many times to watch Cricket Matches. It is located in the heart of the city. It has a total capacity of 90,000 persons.The stadium atmosphere during the matches is just too awesome. P.S. Don't you miss the Mexican Wave!! :-)

Likes: Capacity, crowd during the cricket match, ambience and energy when match in this ground, location in the city. Dislikes: Could have been maintained better, matches are not that frequent, could have been open for other activities

I fond this place to be more of a picnic place for people from the far off villages and towns. It has a decent layout and a lot of heritage, but it is unpleasant to be there.

I think all know this place because cricket fans are not less in India or world.Its a big green ground which looks like a round shaped table.Its so awesome to watch a match in night there because lighting of the place make that ground looks like a day.

It is the mecca of cricket. Eden gardens is a pretty big ground and the most important thing is the crowd.Once used to accommodate almost 1 lakh people and guess now can take in close to 75K people..Its a treat to watch a cricket match when the stadium is full, lush green ground and feels like a billiard table..Awesome experience...
