India travel guide

India - Kolkata (Calcutta) (Chapter)

16th Edition Oct 2015

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

India’s second-biggest city is a festival of human existence, simultaneously noble and squalid, cultured and desperate. By its old spelling, Calcutta conjures up images of human suffering to most Westerners. But locally, Kolkata is regarded as India’s intellectual and cultural capital.

  • ponder the contradictions of the magnificent Victoria Memorial
  • maps
  • watch goddesses coming to life in the curious lanes of Kumartuli or on Kalighat Rd, near the famous Kalighat Temple
  • transport
  • sample lip-smackingly authentic Bengali cuisine at Bhojohori Manna
  • restaurants & accommodation

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