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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Belur Math and Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar). Get some historical perspective at Dakshineswar Kali Temple and Kalighat Kali Temple. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Victoria Memorial Hall, steep yourself in history at Jorasanko Thakur Bari, stop by Sunshine, and get curious at Birla Industrial & Technological Museum.
