Kolkata (Calcutta)

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Shrine Basilica Bandel and Science City. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jain Temple - Kolkata and The Strand. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kolkata (Calcutta): Chandannagar Church (in Chandannagar), Bandel (in Hooghly) and Second Hooghly Bridge (in Howrah). There's lots more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, learn more about the world around you at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar), take in the spiritual surroundings of BAPS Shree Swaminarayan Mandir, and stop by Sunshine.

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Kolkata (Calcutta) trip itinerary planning tool .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
