The former capital of British India, the cultural city of Kolkata is vibrant and festive.

Its colonial history is evident in the grand old imperial buildings, the largest of which is the Victoria Memorial. Built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the spectacular building, now houses a museum in her memory and that of the British Raj. The city’s majestic Howrah Bridge is a sight in itself; the gateway of Kolkata connecting over two million commuters a day to and from the Howrah district and the eastern part of the country.

Beautiful parks and gardens, tranquil temples and an array of bookshops, museums and galleries, its no wonder this multi-cultural city is a centre for art and learning.
