Kolkata is the best of the best tourist place I ever experience.Kolkata was the outstanding place for tourist and for eaters also.They have there own tradional foods like Hilsa Fish with rice, Handi meat and NIZAM's Keema kabab roll Famous all around in Kolkata.Last week I went to this super sweet place, know for there mostly extra ordinary sweets like Rasogulla, Dahi bada and ovisouly for Fish rice and for dozens of historical monuments.


Kolkata(formerly Calcutta) is the capital of India's West Bengal state. Founded as an East India Company trading post, it was India's capital under the British Raj from 1773-1911. Today it’s known for its grand colonial architecture, art galleries and cultural festivals. It’s also home to Mother House, headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa, whose tomb is on site.


I stayed at one of the most historic hotel named The Great Eastern Hotel .officially Lalit Great Eastern Hotel. This was founded as the Auckland Hotel in 1841, at the crossroads of the Old Courthouse Street and British India Street.
