Best city of India & also known as city of joy

Kolkata, a city situated in west of Bengal. Capital city of West Bengal. Its really a city joy. It gives you number of reasons, why Kolkata is best place in India. Earlier Calcutta was the capital of India. It has everything that will make people joyful.

Culture and ethnicity of Kolkata is fabulous and awesome. From 'Bengoli saari to Rasoogulla' everything is perfect. Its the place of 'Maa Durga' Its biggest festival of India Durga Puja is best celebrated here only. During Durga Puja whole city gets decorated, all people indulge in Puja.

It has number if places to visit, from history to modern, it has everything to visit. World famous 'Eden Garden' stadium is here only, in middle of city. The places like Kali Ghat, kali Mnadir, Victoria Memorial, Birala Mandir, Birla Planterium, Howrah Junction, Howrah Bridge, Launch, Metro, Science City, Church these are important places to visit. Howrah Bridge is the best bridge of India situated just near biggest Railway station of India Howrah Junction. Dumdum is major place as it has airport and metro, local trains. Local Streets like, Sobha Bazaar, Espante, Dumdum, Madi bazaar, Shalimaretc are good joyful places. As Living Legend 'Sahrukh Khan' is Brand Ambassador of Kolkata, city becomes more special.

Food- when talk about food, The fish and rice is speciality of Bengal. Fishes which will get in Kolkata, will never get anywhere in world to eat. Rasogulla, sweet is also special item of Kolkata. All the food are tasty there. One thing I forget to tell you, the city is extremely economical, no city in world is as economical as Kolkata or whole West Bengal. Football is major game of Bengoli. As a whole the city has given many things to joy to us and India. People of Kolkata are very sweet and helpful. I can surely tell you, if you go to Kolkata, you are gonna love it.

Incredible India!

Reliving my childhood!

Visiting Kolkata after 15 plus years, is an which you can feel only inside but not possible to write in words. This time i was totally amazed to see the all new Kolkata. As it was raining on the day when we arrived at Sealdah Railway Station, I was actually enjoying the downpour. The stink at the railway station was still the same, people waitng to see their near n dear once, that hussle bussle, that feeling to be in Kolkata is awesome.

Had our lunch at Krystal Chopsticks - pathetic taste, we found cockroach roaming around on the walls, didn't checked about this restaurant earlier. Will not go again to this restaurant. Stayed in Kolkata for a single day, so before leaving Kolkata, we went to see Victoria Memorial and then the famous ikka Ride( I call it TAM-TAM Ride), which was a Wonderful experience.

Visited Kalighat, went to shopping at Dhakeshwari, Garihat, amazing customer service will remember for the rest of my life. The Indian Silk House, wonderful collection n warm welcome to the guest's is hats off, Loved shopping this time. Waiting to be in Kolkata soon n again so to taste the good food of Kolkata,

A note: kindly let me know the good places to eat in Kolkata, specially the famous Kolkata chicken rolls.
