Fort Williams Kolcutta, an ancient city which has seen history unfold itself in front of her. A city which has completed three hundred years of its establishment. Kolcutta, which had the privilege of being the capital of British India before it was shifted to Delhi. Kolcutta, a city which has adopted to the modern trends and techniques of the world but has not shed the leisurely life style and the calm which it has acummulated since ages. A city which till few years ago was the most densely populated city in the world. Kolcutta has the country&39s first Metro railway and also retains some of the building which are more than hundred year old. It is a city of enduring charm.

In 1696, the establishment of Fort Williams marked the birth of a new city, Kolcutta. It derived its name from Kalikatta, one of the villages which was incorporated in the new settlement of Britishers. Kolcutta has since developed from a fishermens&39 village to become one of the largest cities in the world. Being the capital of the British till 1912, the architecture here is a medley of occidental and oriental styles. Today the city symbolises creativity and vibrance with all the modern amenities available.


Kali Temple The present temple was built in 1809 on the site of an ancient temple. It is also known as the Kalighat temple. It is on the name of this temple that English gave the place name Kolcutta which is anglicized form of Kalikata. The legend says that a finger of the Sati, wife of Lord Shiva, fell here. Since then it has been an important pilgrimage site. But the temple is dedicated to the destructive side of Shiva which takes the form of Kali. She requires sacrifice daily to satisfy her blood lust so every morning goats are sacrifices on the alter of the temple. The temple is busy through out the year and is surrounded by poor who come to have free meal. The Hospital for Dying Destitute by Mother Teresa is near the temple and every one is a welcome visitor here.

Lake : An artificial lake was built towards south of the city. Today this lake serves as venue for the hosting of various competitions in swimming and boating. Beside the lake is a sports complex which is meant for training sportsmen in various discipline. In the idyllic surroundings is set a Yoga centre for meditation and beautiful parks are meant for walks.


Birla Planetarium : One the earliest planetariums in India, the Birla Planetarium in Kolcutta is a major tourist attraction. The planetarium was opened in 1961 and the cost of completion came to about 2 crores. The capacity of the auditorium is 500 and there are daily film shows. These shows are in different languages. Inside the planetarium you can relax and gaze at the stars which are better seen here than in the polluted atmosphere out side. The planetarium gives complete information about the Universe and our solar systems. The models kept here are special attraction for the children.

Indian Museum : This museum was established in 1878. The museum is built in Italian architectural style and is considered as the largest museum in the country and one of the best in Asia.

It was renamed as Sahid Minar and is located on Northern part of the Maidan. Height of the column is 48m. From the top of the Minar a good view of the city can be obtained but permission to ascend the tower has to be taken from the police headquarters in Lal Bazaar.

Victoria Memorial An splendid example of British architecture, this building was built in memory of Queen Victoria and was inaugurated by Prince of Wales in 1921. The Memorial is based on architecture of the Taj and is built in marble. The wrought iron gates, the lamp posts, the brass cannons and the Statute of the Queen at the entrance every thing spells the magic of British monarchy and their grandeur. The memorial today treasures many paintings, attires and other items used by the British during their rule in India. This building can also be termed as the British museum. In 25 rooms of the memorial are kept around 3500 items which are related to Queen Victoria. In the evenings the light and sound programs is a major attraction for the tourists. The fountain of Joy in the premises of the memorial presents an atmosphere of memorable charm.
