Kolkata (Calcutta)

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bandel and Second Hooghly Bridge. Change things up with these side-trips from Kolkata (Calcutta): The Strand (in Chandannagar) and Shrine Basilica Bandel (in Hooghly). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jain Temple - Kolkata, catch the contagious excitement of Royal Calcutta Turf Club, get lost in a book at National Library, and contemplate the long history of Vivekananda Museum.
