Used to be one of the largest stadium of the world after MCG on basis of seating capacity (1 lakh) which now a days reduced to a mere 65k. This majestic ground boasts of its mad crowd, sportsman spirit, mexican wave and many more. It is the venue of many historic cricket matches ever played in the history of the game. One truly said that A cricketer is never complete unless he played atleast once in front of a fully packed Eden Garden crowd. They will love you, clap for you, dance for you & will shout their heart out for you. These all will come as an electrified package in presence of an outstanding environment. Home ground of the best ever captain of India - Sourav Ganguly. Also homes the IPL team of the city KKR.
No words can really describe the actual ambiance inside until one is physically present there. Its awesome & marvellous.
But there are a few things of concern such as Toilets are always stinking and not well maintained. Its better to buy package drinking water instead opting for the tap water which a may be contaminated due to lack of maintenance of the tank.
And BEWARE of over-tight, over-hyped, ridiculous, callous & useless security arrangements which might stop you to carry even coins, water bottles, baby foods also inside the gallery. And no senior officials present to complain about these foolish & stupid personnel.
