Kolkata, the City of Joy:

Kolkata, earlier known as Calcutta, is one of the major cities of India and the gateway to eastern India.

A city highly esteemed as cultural capital of India with its long tradition of passion and appreciation for art & culture, carefully preserves its colonial heritage & values with one hand while nourishes modernity to embrace the future on the other.

Shahid Minar

A city characterized with mesmerizing opposites and paradoxes is either loved or hated but never fails to captivate tourists' mind. A city where past, present and future peacefully co-exist with all their enigmatic contrasts and contradictions.

We suggest, your journey to the city should begin with its history[ 1, 2, 3] and then a little bit of its geography, general climate and daily-weather[detailed meteorological , quick forecast] holding a map in your hand.

If interested, delve deep into its citizens and their today's art & culture, wander through its roads dotted with lots of landmarks[1, 2 ] and have frolic and fun all over it. If you love gold-old days then museums, especially Indian Museum [official site, an alternate good guide] and national library are certainly your place of musings.

We provide your city-travel-companion in the form of local road-transport[bus, taxi] surface railway, underground metro railway and nevertheless, what we really feel comfortable with, a telephone-directory.

You can reach the city and go out of it by air or by railways[1, 2, 3] and travel within West Bengal and India [1, 2, 3].
