What to do in Kolkata
Kolkata is a city in India that will both charm and surprise you. It combines both India and England into one, with classic temples and colonial-era architecture. Being the country’s intellectual and spiritual capital, Kolkata is where you need to travel for reflection, solo adventures, and incredible cultural experiences.
Enjoy a stroll along Chowringhee Road and uncover the beauty of Kolkata. Look across the road and you’ll see the lush parkland of Maidan. It’s a fantastic place to observe the local way of life and the Kolkata skyline.
Bring your camera and take pictures of the incredible Victoria Memorial Hall. Go hunt for more awesome architecture in the city and check out St Paul's Cathedral, Nakhoda Mosque, and the Japanese Buddhist Temple.
Turn your hunt into an exciting temple run and visit Kalighat Temple, Parsi Fire Temples, Dakshineswar Kali Temple, and the breathtaking Pareshnath Jain Temple. And if you travelled to Kolkata for Mother Teresa, stop by the Motherhouse.
Can’t get enough of Kolkata’s culture? Spend hours exploring the Indian Museum, Birla Children’s Museum, State Archaeological Museum, and Gurusaday Museum. You can also catch a show at the Nandan Theatre.
Join the city’s best events to experience Kolkatta like a true local. Watch a game of cricket at Eden Gardens from April to May. Find Indian literature and more at the International Kolkata Bookfair.
Bring home a piece of Kolkata and go shopping at the New Market, Gariahat Market, and Dakshinapan Shopping Centre. Then complete your Kolkata trip with a boat cruise under the starlit sky at river bank of Hooghly and an incredible view of Outram Ghat.
