Kolkata is the second-largest city in India, and the largest destination in the West Bengal region. It is commonly referred to as the cultural gem of India, and boasts a very interesting colonial history. The city was home to the East India Trading Company, and became the capital of British India, which explains why Kolkata is drenched in traditional European architecture.Don’t Miss
Historical sites are found across the city. Fort William is a magnificent colonial-built citadel that still stands proudly today. It was first constructed in 1773, and was almost impregnable. Tourists can, however, only visit this site with special permission. Not far from this site is the marble-built Victoria Monument. In northern Kolkata, the widely known Marble Palace is a magnificent attraction. The onsite garden here and dozens of statues make this a beautiful part of Kolkata city.
Each year, plenty of interesting festivals are held in the major cities around India. However, the most eye-catching must-see celebration is the Durga Puja festival, held each October.
