“Wow what a place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The maidan is a huge expanse of open ground in front of the Victoria Memorial and the best part of this space is you have a variety of things happening there. From street acts, to horse riding, to street food, balloon shooting, boys playing cricket, football and et all. Walking through this place takes you to a different world.

“Central park of India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

No trip to Kolkata can be complete without experiencing the Maidan. For someone from Mumbai, it is amazing to see this vast expanse of open space in the middle of the city. It would have been great if they had developed walkways around the Maidan as it does get a bit scary to be the only ones walking the roads as cars and buses zip by.

“Sort of green space in the middle of the city.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

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