Kolkata is known as the city of joy, and the city of palaces.
Be a part of the history and culture of Bengal. Enjoy a concert, play or a book reading event. Visit the birth place of Rabindra Nath Tagore or else Santiniketan (the world’s only open air university), pay your respects at the Ramakrishna Mission, Dakshineswar, and at the home of Mother Teresa. Enjoy the sound and light show at Victoria memorial. Take time out for Eden Gardens or the road side book market at College Street. Take a boat ride on the Ganges. And of course, there are enough malls, restaurants and night clubs to keep you engaged.
