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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate The Strand and Shrine Basilica Bandel. Head to Park Street and City Centre, New Townfor plenty of shopping. Go for a jaunt from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Hooghly to see Bandel about 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, take an in-depth tour of Vivekananda Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at BAPS Shree Swaminarayan Mandir, and make a trip to Dakshineswar Kali Temple.
