India - Kolkata (Calcutta) (Chapter)
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
- 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
- sample lip-smackingly authentic Bengali cuisine at Bhojohari Manna
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Volunteering, Tours, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
