Places of Interest in Kolkata

Itineraries:-

1. Victoria Memorial:
The gigantic epitome of supreme British and Indian architecture spins a magic Weave around anybody who takes even a baby step towards its shores for the first time in their lives. The name even evokes an awe and admiration in the hearts of any erudite humankind who beholds the place in search of aesthetic grandeur. Whenever the place is visited, an epic sense of joy touches the inner chords of any connoisseur beholding the Taj of Kolkata for the first time in his or her life. Victoria Memorial, which is the soul of the City of Joy is located in its epicentre amidst lush greenery and vegetation and is a juggernaut of a monument which stands tall and imposing in the middle of the daily humdrums of this city. The architecture is in sync with its British past but also with a symmetrical resonance with the Indian heritage. Kolkata is incomplete without the Victoria Memorial.

2. Mother Teresa House (Missionaries of Charity)
There is a great joy in loving. When you want to witness the caring hand of God in imparting unbridled joy and love to the less fortunate ones of the society, the Mother Teresa House of the Missionaries of Charity is an epitome of that piousness in this City of Joy. Nestled in the busy junction of the AJC Bose Road in Kolkata, it is a place where everybody can claim to be their own home for peace and love.

3. St. John's Church, Dalhousie
If one is interested to catch a glimpse of an Indian version of 'The Last Supper' which was painted by Johann Zoffany, 'St. John' Church' situated in the heart of Kolkata is one such place for many such artistic paintings, artefacts and memorials. It is one of the most important Church in the city of Kolkata. It houses the Mausoleum of Job Charnok, tomb of Black hole of Calcutta and Warren Hastings' (the first governor General of Bengal) former office during the British Raj.

4. Howrah Bridge
When you have to traverse the mighty Ganges with its rippling waves which even the great 'Seleucus' did not dare in the days of yore to cross over to Kolkata, the indelible image of the modern marvel of 'Howrah Bridge' conjures up in your mind like a Noah's Ark carrying people from Howrah to Kolkata day in and day out. Named after the great poet 'Rabindranath Tagore', this bridge has become a symbol of the hustling and bustling life of the City of joy.

5. Mullik Ghat Flower Market
The true essence of a city is on its streets. Kolkata can be really explored on the streets and when you visit the aromatic and resplendent sights of the Mullik Ghat flower market on the adjunct of the East end of Howrah bridge, you feel the colours of life have blossomed in all its motley forms. This flower market is really a place to visit and every time you do so, the hustling and bustling all around with its sensory delights make you feel truly elated in the City of Joy. The Mullick Ghat Flower Market should be in the itinerary of all the visitors who are visiting Kolkata for the first time in their lives.

6. Marble Palace (closed on Mondays and Thursdays) or Park Street Cemetery
Kolkata with its various epithets is also called the 'City of Palaces' and rightfully so. It is a connoisseur's delight to roam around this city which is full of palatial buildings with classic frescoes, heritage architecture, archaeological splendour and many more. So, when you visit the 'Marble Palace' in North Kolkata, it is with awe that you enter its precincts and delightfully savour its neoclassical structure for eternity. Marble Palace is a mansion famous for its marble floors and walls and is a vintage sight for the visitors.

7. Jain Temple
India is a land of many diverse cultures and religions and Kolkata is a true representation of it. If you want to witness the quintessential Kolkatan life in all its myriad colours, you have to venture to the North of the city which is its old part. One of the prime landmarks of North Kolkata is the 'Jain Temple' which is a congregation of the followers of Jainism from all over the country. Known for its sublime architecture, the 'Jain Temple' is a true symbolic body of peace, devotion and equality in diversity.
