Calcutta

Immortalised as the ‘City of Joy’, Calcutta is a sprawling metropolis of contradictions. Sparkling high-rises tower over crumbling vestiges of colonial India while rickshaw-wallahs ply their trade on the city’s chaotic streets. As the former capital of the Raj, its wide boulevards are lined with grand symbols of the Empire, while the narrow lanes reveal a myriad of Indian life.

Showcasing its rich history, Calcutta’s sites tell the stories of its inhabitants, from the early travellers who rest in the South Park Street Cemetery, to the clerks of the Writer’s Building and the potters of Kumartuli. Calcutta’s charm lies in its people; widely read, intellectual and immensely proud of their city’s rich culture.
