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.
Escape the urban bustle at Kolkata Zoo & Zoological Garden and Rabindra Sarovar. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Dakshineswar Kali Temple and Kalighat Kali Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Howrah (Ram Mandir Garden, Avani Riverside Mall, & more), Hooghly (Shrine Basilica Bandel, Bandel, & more) and Bishnupur (Keibul Lamjao National Park & Maa Chinnamasta Temple). Pack the 25th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Nicco Parks & Resorts Limited. Spend the 2nd (Wed) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: get curious at Science City, explore the different monuments and memorials at South Park Street Cemetery, see the interesting displays at Victoria Memorial Hall, and get a new perspective on nature at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar).
