Seeing the mammoth Victoria Memorial Hall, I felt that I am not in India. Its neat and clean to begin with. The best time to go is on a weekday after 1430 hours and don't forget to take your camera along. The hall has a gallery which is open till 1700 and the gardens are open till 1800. The gallery...

A cool place to hang around with family or friends, specially after sun down in summer. A cool breeze will soothe you. Inside lies history of the British period Kolkata. One can enjoy the lawns too. A tonga (horse driven carriage) ride is optional to view this marble splendor from outside too.

Constructured of white Makrana marble, the building must have recently been cleaned because it looks as white as the day it was built. The design is in the Indo-Saracenic revivalist style. This style uses a mix of British and Mughal elements as well as Venetian, Egyptian, Deccani and Islamic architectural influences, and is large. 338 feet (103 m) by 228... More

Located right in the heart of Kolkata, it is a must visit for one and all. The museum has some interesting history on display. Morevoer, the surrounding of the monument is a super place to relax and chill out.
