Silversea Luxury Cruises A Kolkata

Kolkata

Kolkata was known until 2001 as Calcutta, but the name has been changed from its Anglicized form left over from days when the city was Capital of the British Raj. This bustling city has a population of approximately 4.5 million people and is surprisingly green with parks and trees. Originally the city was little more than a series of villages built upon the Hooghly River’s banks. During British occupation the villages grew together and the area turned into a hub for trade.

Historic reminders of this era stand with the St Paul’s Cathedral, the Kolkata General Post Office, and the Victoria Memorial. The famous Tollygunge Club, which was the first Country Club of its kind in India, is a serene oasis on the southern fringes of Kolkata. Indian culture abounds at the Indian Museum and in the religious buildings and shrines including the Birla Temple, Dakshineswar Kali Temple and the Belur Math Shrine. Train buffs will want to stop at the Howrah Junction Railway Station, the oldest and busiest railway station in Eastern India.
