Nice Place for a Horse Cart Ride

Very close to the famous Victoria Memorial, Maidan is an open space and you can go for a horse cart riding in the old style.Crowded with tourist most of the times.

This place is the green zone of Kolkata. This area comes under Military and as such there are no edifices in the area except Victoria Memorial. There are sports club in and around this area. If one wants to take fresh area in Kolkata, this is the right place.

Without the Kolkata maidan, Kolkata would have been choking due to pollution. With giant trees and tanks and vast green fields, the maidan indeed helps the citizen to breathe free air and to go out on morning walks and exercise during the day.

Great place to wander early in the morning or in the evening. Plenty to see and do and lots to take photographs of. You can sit and watch or join the other strollers along the river side.

A welcome open space in this busy City. Unfortunately some rather nasty tower blocks like the 42 have been allowed to go up...
