Raj Heritage Walk

65 reviews
This is a Story Walk & one of our most popular tours, certified by so many travelers through the years! If you like listening to stories about the Raj days and Kolkata then this is your tour! It is a very interesting story of how the British started trading in this part of the world rivalling earlier European entrants. Many a booming cannon later, they became the leading traders. What followed was a small fort, a big port, a great battle, many changing fortunes and lots of colonial cunning & politics. The East India Company & later the Flag of the Empire gave a lot of importance to Calcutta for its trading, political and administrative clout. She was after all the Capital of British India for a long time & arguably the second most important city in the Empire. Along with Defense & Administration came institutions for Entertainment, Education & Emancipation. The light of European renaissance came as an ambient source & later cascaded into its own indigenous, self generating brightness.

Even if you are an art lover, you won't find anything different and new here. Same old paintings and crafts.

The paintings, tapestry, pot-work and other artistic items put up on sale in Art Museum were amazing. Also, the items were being sold at a Government-determined subsidised rate, much cheaper than compared to the market-price.
