Whenever one thinks of West Bengal or Kolkata what first comes to our mind?
1.)ThisThe magnificent and splendid Howrah Bridge -
joining Howrah and Kolkata thus I count it as one of Kolkata's treasure.
2.)Jorasanko Thakur Bari:
It would give old Calcuttan vibes as you step into the old Bengali architecture with looming balconies and wide veranda, the regal glory conserved till this date
.3.) Indian Museum:
Previously known as The Imperial Museum of Calcutta, it is the largest and oldest museum of India. It is a treasury of culture and heritage, history and mythology, crafts and science.
4.) Clive House:
Not a typical tourist spot and some aren't even aware of it.The mysterious building of Calcutta, known sono as its origin has not been estimated till date. It was renovated by Robert Clive as his country house, but today it's in a dilapidated condition and is assumed to be the oldest building in Kolkata. Its vehement historical appeal can be perceived from outside only.
5.) Victoria Memorial:
Located on Maidan, on the banks of Hoogly River, it is a large marble building to commemorate the life of Queen Alexandria Victoria, the first British Empress of India. It's a visual treat of 25 galleries and gardens expanding over 64 acres.
These are some of the popular places of Kolkata.
