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. This former British colonial stronghold boasts evidence of over two millennia of habitation, with ornate, architecturally diverse buildings, ranging from crumbing ruins to Victorian treasures. Home to lively festivals and a vibrant artistic community, clamorous markets and packed temples, this city is crowded and polluted, but ultimately invigorating. It’s also home to Mother House, headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa, whose tomb is on site.
Attractions in Kolkata: Park Street, New Market, Victoria Memorial, Mullik (Malik) Ghat Flower Market, Howrah Bridge, Mother Teresa’s Mother House, Dakshineswar Kali Temple, Belur Math, Kumartuli, South Park Cemetery, Old Chinatown (Tiretta Bazaar).
