"Superb place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 20, 2016
I came to Howrah with my father and mother in the semester break of my college. We stayed in the flat of my elder sister who works in TCS. Next day, we booked a taxi and planned to visit the famous places of Howrah. We visited place like Howrah Bridge, Alipore zoo, Victoria Memorial, Dakshineswar, Belurmath and Science City. We enjoyed a lot especially in Science City and Alipore zoo. We ate different types of food like fish chop, Chicken momo, Jeera rice, Chatpata paneer, Bhelpuri, Rosogula and many more items. So, I highly recommend other to visit Howrah.

"City of Joy in India-Howrah"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 18, 2015
Howrah and Kolkata are cities known as city of joy. The city offers you a comfortable stay and there are people of different cultures living harmoniously. You can get a food from Rs1 to 1000 varying different budgets of different people. The local train offers you a best economical and cheapest mode of transport in the city. The mini bus transport makes a city lovable to ply from one end to another in a cheaper way. To the best of my knowledge Kolkata is a most economical metro compared to other metro cities.
