    Walking Down a Lane of Legacy!!
    Walking on this street takes you to a time travel where you witness something that has remained as one of the India's most happening streets for more than a century. There are still some restaurants and pubs that are being run by Anglo Indian families since the time of the British Raj. There are lot of food and shopping options and all the major attractions of the city are very near to this place.

    Park Street, presently renamed as Mother Teresa sarani, is another milestone in the history of Kolkata which has seen many rulers and withstood the passage of time. Park Street houses many reputed restaurants and considered ideal for fine dining by both middle & upper class Kolkattans. It also houses a few important historical buildings eg, St Xavier's College, Archbishop's House, Asiatic society and South Park street cemetery. This place draws huge crowd during Christmas & New year. One cannot help but falling in love with this place irrespective of the season.

    Park Street in Kolkotta is really a happening place when it comes to both food shopping and looking around and spending time. It really flies. Christmas time Park Street stands out in the country. The street being many kilometers is all decked up, lit and food on the street during Christmas time. It's an experience that doesn't drill holes in your pocket. It's the heart of the city.

I had a terrible experience getting medicines from Park Street branch of Life line pharmacy of Kolkata. The staff there are very rude & takes unusually long time to deliver you the medicines. They will keep gossiping and if you complain about being late they will abuse you & threaten you. They will make you feel like beggar as they are selling medicines with some discount.

Park Street used to be a high end area. However, it looked somewhat run down to me since I went there after more than 15 years. More crowded and dirty. Flurry's, the well known confectionery shop, is still there and seemed to maintain its standard.

In 1773 Park Street, then Burial Ground Road was built to connect Chowringhee and Circular Road. The stress was given to reach the cemeteries located near to Circular Road crossing. Park Street cemetery was opened in 1767 on a marshy land and was in use till 1830. This cemetery was one of the oldest non-church cemeteries in the world and probably the largest Christian cemetery in 18th and 19th century outside Europe and America.
Park Street at present is the most elite part of Kolkata with most popular food joints. Illuminated Park Street during Christmas/New Year remains heavily crowded.

With a string of restaurants on either side of the road Park Street has an Old world charm. A visit to any of these restaurants takes you back to the Colonial days as the decor & ambience is stuck in time.

Park Street has a lot of shops which offer the famous Bengali Mithai

Park Street on a lazy Valentine’s Day afternoon, with the perfect weather & the great company of the loved ones... the vibes, the mood & the nostalgia are just out of their world & that’s why I guess Park Street never gets old for anyone who’s been visiting the places for decades. We keep longing to visit the magical street due to the great Restuarants & eateries, bars/ pubs, so many great shopping options & more...

I would call this street a contemporary view of Kolkata. It is good for westerners who do not want to stray much from what they know because the style of the bars and resraurants is very western world. There is a Starbucks and lots of "trendy" coffee shops and stores. It is not my style of travel because it feels like a tourist trap. But I still recommend seeing it especially around Christmas / New Year and at night. The entire street is decorated with lights around Christmas. There is also a very active, very young night life. It reminds me of New York.

Beware of cars if you are not used to Indian driving. Crossing the street is like a game of human Frogger.

Park Street is a nice place to go in Kolkata to get a feel of the place. The street is lined up with restaurants, pubs and cafes and also lots of shops. A nice place to taste some authentic Bengali food.

Park Street is a heritage road just for the vibes and ambience. Lined up with great places to eat party and libraries, this is a place to visit at night time when you are in Kolkata . Very few places can match up to this ambience.
