“History captured”

In the heart of the city easy to go, i just took a yellow taxi and dropped in back gate of the Hall. I was very excited to see a General's picture from my country "Mathbar Singh Thapa".

“No. 1 tourist spot in Kolkata”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This place is the main attraction of Kolkata. It is a beautiful building with lots of old and memorial things laying for tourists. The building is located in the centre of the city with never ending structure. It is located amidst lash green gardens and birla planetarium is very near to this place. A Must Visit
