The guard on the gate tried to trick me out of 100 Rupee…watch your change. The exhibition inside is fairly interesting, but why are all the guards/curators armed with guns? Don’t miss a trip up around the upper level of the dome.

The Victorial Memorial is one of Kolkata's landmarks just like the Howrah bridge.
What to say about it?
It is wonderful in the morning afternoon,evening and night.
In the evening when the lights go up it shows another splendid look.
The gardens are a pleasure to go around with excellent architectural specimens of Anglic architecture.
The Victorial memorial is an architectural delight.
the visit inside the memorial, housing pictures and artefacts can be done in half an hour or in many days depending on how much interest one has in learning more and more about various things and history.

It is not a very popular place now, though, if you want to get connected with the past of the city, then this place will tell you something about it. These days’ park surrounding the Victoria Memorial has become a hiding place for couples.

It gives you a very peaceful kind of feeling sitting in the lawn. The inside is Air-Conditioned engulfing the complete history of Britishers.

From outside it was great. Not that interesting from inside. Take care when paying for the ticket. In return on a thousand not, the officer gave me INR 100 less than he should - but no problem in getting the 100, when I asked, if it wasn't time for him to go back to school.
