Kolkata (Calcutta) holidays

Kolkata (Calcutta) was the capital of British India until 1911 and the character of this city, perhaps more than any other, has been shaped by the British Raj. Many colonial buildings remain and the British legacy can still be felt in the city’s social and sporting life. Amongst the most famous of the monuments in Kolkata are the Victoria Memorial, planned by Viceroy Curzon and referred to both as Curzon’s folly and the British Taj Mahal, and the Howrah bridge, one of the largest cantilever bridges in the world.
