It’s the heart of Kolkata with great restaurants, shopping destination and many offices. Heritage buildings dot the area. Availability of Parking is an issue.

This was perhaps one of the founding streets of the city, a first built. Today it is a very populous area with many offices and head offices. The iconic British buildings can still be seen here.

Central Business District of Kolkata is called Chowrangi. Totally haphazard, no traffic sense, however real Kolkata.

This is one of the most busy and happening place in central Kolkata. Many government office and other business activities are running in this place everyday. It is the prime business centre of the city.
