massive!!!!!
Dec 2019
Huge huge ground, surrounded by historical places and buildings, with some musical fountain at one end, perfect place to relax and spend time. You have ll the clubs near to it like Mohammedan Sporting, Mohun Bagan etc...
With the big straight road around, which can be used a runway for flights in case of military emergencies, which once was a no entry zone for Indians, during british raj, it also gives you nostalgic memories.
Fort william next to it, now as a military base, is another wonder.
You have a war memorial, in it
The great Eden gardens is visible at other end

Perfect place for free hangout in the midst of nature
Oct 2019
I have been here on many occasions and this is the perfect place for a group hangout in the midst of nature. It has lots of greenery and a big ground to sit and relax, accompanied by tea and snacks from the roadside vendors.

Horse Ride Near Maidan
Jan 2019
Being born and brought up in Kolkata and having spent almost my entire childhood in the City of Joy, Victoria Memorial and the grounds in front of it had very special place for me. During visits with my parents, we used to feast at the great street food jamboree right in front of the Victoria Memorial – unfortunately very little of that was left now. What was intact however was the large playgrounds of Kolkata called the Maidans. Numerous cricket matches with friends had taken place here – and the place was largely unchanged in the last 3 decades.

The place remains the lungs of Kolkata – and the place for future cricket stars like Saurav Ganguly to take shape here. We took a horse ride for a nostalgic trip around the maidan costing about 500Rs. It was good fun. Go to the Maidan for some long walk in the heart of Kolkata.

A big ground
Jun 2019 • Solo
This is the biggest ground in Kolkata. It is a key location of Kolkata. Around the Maidan you will find Victoria Memorial, Hugli Bridge, Even Garden, Park Street, Fort William etc. As this ground mostly used for sports, so many famous sports club also build around this Maidan. In Morning time visiting Maidan is much enjoyable. Even during evening you can have a good time around Maidan.
