Did not expect to see such a space in the crowded city of Kolkata. The city is extremely dirty in parts, but worth seeing.

After the busy organised chaos of the city markets, traffic and people it is a welcome relief to find a little green slice of calm not too far away. Little is a slight understatement though, as the eye takes in the vast flat plains of lush grass.
Whilst there is not really anything to do here, other than observe some locals enjoying their day; cricket, farming, lounging etc. it is still a pleasant and peaceful place to visit, while away a few hours, perhaps a day even.

And after the manic experiences of Kolkata, that is a much welcomed activity in itself.

Its possible only in Kolkata that a place so big is unfenced and yet beautiful.
Situated at the heart of the city the place is home of many joggers, many hawkers for their rest and place of romance for a bunch of excited couple.

The place is ideal at early morning, just after rain or at late evening. Go for a walk and you wil fall in love with the place....

Huge green lawns but not very well maintained .The trees and greenery should be cared for more for a better ambience.the chariots with poorly kept horses wait around maidan.
