Nestled on the banks of the Hooghly River, Kolkata is a booming metropolis, India's second largest city, and the country's cultural hub, known for being the birthplace of major artistic and literary movements.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Sun): make a trip to Dakshineswar Kali Temple, then admire all the interesting features of Eden Gardens, then learn more about the world around you at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar), and finally don't miss a visit to Mother House. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Victoria Memorial Hall, then take a stroll through Park Street, then snap pictures at Howrah Bridge, and finally don't miss a visit to College Street (Boi Para).
