A must visit at Kolkata. A real treasure left by the old British Kingdom. Wonderful view esp. during the magic hour. The historical building is just amazing. If you have time, talking about one full day, pay for a ticket for the museum visit.

I do not find a reason why it should not. but in case the guards do not allow you, you should avoid wearing that.

I am sorry, but you do not get parking facility immediately close o it. The car can be parked at Maidan area, infront of Eliot park. Hence if you travel by a car, you should better take your driver.
