This structure is located at the centre of the city. Its a Taj Mahal look alike built in the honour of Queen Victoria during the British rule. Looks beautiful although quite a portion of it is under construction now.

Kolkata is nothing less than a treasure for any tourist who wishes to see the best of yesteryears and present together. The city is home to so many museums that you get to know a lot in different fields. Victoria Memorial Hall, which is famous in entire country as one of the foremost British Period buildings is also present here.

I have been multiple time to this monument but it always amazes me how amazing its structure and surrounding are compared to other buildings of the era. It's brief glimpse of a time when these kind of buildings showcased the power of the one who ruled and he ne the imposing architecture. Its a must visit if you are visiting... More

Its one of the renowned monuments not in Kolkata but in India. The monument contains some of the most rarest pictures as well. The best time to visit Victoria Memorial Hall is between October and March when you will conveniently miss the sweaty, humid bengal summer.
