    Victoria Memorial

    This stately monument is as much a part of Kolkata as the Taj Mahal is to Delhi (Agra). Surrounded by acres of lush gardens, its Italian Renaissance style architecture is mesmerizing, especially on moonlit nights. If you are interested in Royal portraits, head for the Royal Gallery inside the monument. But the gallery that draws the most visitors is a recent addition – the Calcutta Gallery.

    Belur Math

    Founded by Swami Vivekananda in memory of Ramakrishna Paramahansa, Belur Math is one of the finest examples of modern temple architecture in India -a perfect blend of temple, church and mosque. It’s inspired by Swamiji’s philosophy of universal brotherhood. The place has great historical significance – Vivekananda spent his last years here. Add to this the tranquility of its surroundings and the view of the river Ganges gently caressing the temple garden in the early morning sun.

    Kalighat Temple

    Though there is nothing to substantiate it, the Kalighat Temple may have been in Kolkata since the Gupta period. As one of the 51 Peeths of the Goddess Kali, it is one of the holiest places, evoking the deepest devotion from pilgrims across India. The Temple is open every day, but for those who want to make a special offering to the mother Goddess, Thursdays and Saturdays are the days to visit.

    Indian Museum

    To appreciate the history of the origin and growth of the Indian Museum, travel to the end of the 18th century when Sir William Jones founded the Asiatic Society in 1784. Founded in 1814, the Indian Museum is the earliest, and the largest, multipurpose museum on the Indian subcontinent, and in the Asia-Pacific as well. The movement initiated the socio-cultural and scientific achievements of the country. It is otherwise considered the beginning of modernity and the end of the medieval era.
