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.
Let the collections at Victoria Memorial Hall and Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar) capture your imagination. For shopping fun, head to Park Street or South City Mall. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Dakshineswar Kali Temple, stroll the grounds of South Park Street Cemetery, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kalighat Kali Temple, and buy something for everyone on your list at Quest Mall.
