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.
Do your shopping at Sunshine and Academy of Fine Arts. Get some historical perspective at Pareshnath Jain Temple and Shrine Basilica Bandel. Change things up with these side-trips from Kolkata (Calcutta): Chandannagar (The Strand, Sacred Heart Church, & more) and Bandel (in Hooghly). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Chintamoni Kar Bird Sanctuary, examine the collection at Netaji Bhawan, get engrossed in the history at Vivekananda Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at BAPS Shree Swaminarayan Mandir.
