I am not a great admirer of Mamata Banerjee, the West Bengal CM; but I must admit that Didi's Government has done a great job in restoring this place and given this place a place in the itinerary of City's sightseeing. Kolkata's famous Fuchka, Mumbai's famous Pav Bhaji are being eaten here with equal enthusiasm. A boat ride can be equally enjoyable but the cost was too high at Rs.400 for 30 Minutes. Better to negotiate.
Passages are well maintained, well lit up. But need good toilet facilities as well.

Princep Ghat is named after the James Princep memorial in that place. Circular Railway connect Princep Ghat with other railway sections of Kolkata. One can reach this place by Bus also. It is a nice place couples as well as for family to hangout.

I guess these are are all one of the sites there on every tourist guide book. We went on a weekend and it was really busy. Quite a lot of walking you can do. Gives you a great view of the monumental new howrah bridge. One can opto to take a boat ride from the ghat, watch out for slush on the steps at the ghat.There is also a british monument standing tall before the ghats. In the night when it is lit up, it looks very beautiful.

It was teething with people from all works of life and you get to feel the energy of Kolkota.

This is a must visit place if you are in Kolkata. You can stroll at the ghat and then opt for a boat ride - you can enjoy the view of old and new Howrah bridge at both sides with the calmness of water. They take 300/- for half an hour which is expensive but worth it. There are small kiosk for snacks nearby. The river however is very dirty and not maintained. The ghat needs cleaning too.

The boat / ferry ride in the river gives you the eye catching view of the famed ghat ( bank ) of this name . As the ferry comes near this ghat you catch the glimpse of the steps and the historic building on the horizon . The famed ghat is a well known landmark of the history . Boat ride is very nominal and frequent . The sheer pleasure of the being near it adds to its glory .
