An excellent heritage site for visitors. Architecture photographers you have a nice view. Make sure to go at appropriate times as the prayers have fixed times and during that time they do not allow entry in-between.

An astonishing antique place. A prayer in the hall with lovely vibrant flowers is bound to rejuvenate you. A 15 min walk from Victoria Memorial. So please don't miss it.

This is a very big and popular church in Kolkata located just by the Birla Planetarium. The grounds are huge and very peaceful. The interior of the church is also very beautiful and soothing. Must see while in Kolkata.

Beautiful and historic cathedral in the maidan area of Kolkata. Open to the public. Step in to take in the history of the place. Walking distance from the Victoria memorial in less than 10 minutes.
