India travel guide

India - Kolkata (Calcutta) (Chapter)

15th Edition Oct 2013

This is the Kolkata (Calcutta) chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.

Kolkata is regarded as India’s intellectual and cultural capital. Urban slums contrast with dynamic new-town suburbs and a rash of air-conditioned shopping malls. Kolkata’s also the ideal place to experience the mild, fruity tang of Bengali cuisine.

  • watch goddesses coming to life in the curious lanes of Kumartuli or on Kalighat Rd near the famous Kalighat Temple
  • maps
  • ponder the contradictions of the magnificent Victoria Memorial which remains Kolkata’s most splendid building, over 65 years after the end of the colonial era
  • transport
  • sample lip-smackingly authentic Bengali cuisine at Bhojohari Manna
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Volunteering, Tours, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
