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 Dakshineswar Kali Temple and St. Paul's Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Tollygunge Club. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar), explore the different monuments and memorials at South Park Street Cemetery, stroll around Eco Tourism Park, and wander the streets of Park Street.
