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.
Get some cultural insight at Park Street and Victoria Memorial Hall. Visit Dakshineswar Kali Temple and General Post Office for their historical value. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Rabindra Sarovar, look for gifts at Sunshine, get a new perspective on nature at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar), and browse the different shops at South City Mall.
