Kolkata - 3 days
Capital of West Bengal, Kolkata is a sophisticated, cultural and friendly city. Top sights include the Howrah Bridge and colourful flowermarket which crosses the Hooghly River, Indian Museum and Jain Temple.
Enjoy a sightseeing tour of the metropolis, including the Victoria Memorial, the Indian Museum, the Jain Temple and the Howrah bridge.
Formerly known as Calcutta, India’s second-largest city (pop. 14,000,000) is a fascinating east coast metropolis. Visit the Marble Palace mansion to see the paintings and statues, the Jain Temple, Dakshineswar Hindu Temple - 12 Shiva shrines, Belur Math - a temple complex and headquarters of a Monastic Order that is Hindu in origin, the Victoria Memorial, Dalhousie Square (interesting architecture) and the Nakhoda Mosque. For a spectacular view of the city, climb the Octherlony Monument (218 steps up).
Kolkata is also the home of Mother Teresa’s Ashram Home of Children - a visit there can be an emotional and enlightening experience. For a spot of shopping head to the Maidan (a market) and as in many large Indian cities, Kolkata has a fascinating train station, worth a visit even if you’re not taking a train.
