Overview

Kolkata, the city that Dominique Lapierre so memorably called “The City of Joy” is indeed a joy to visit. The erstwhile capital of British India, Kolkata has been the gateway to India for the better part of the 19th century. Alive with art and culture at every street corner, the city is dotted with historic temples, art centres, museums, botanical gardens and some of India’s best restaurants.

The city of Oscar winner Satyajit Ray and Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, loved by the likes of Dominique Lapierre and Richard Gere, Kolkata – the capital of West Bengal should not be missed on a trip to India.
