We were astonished to see such a big ground inside city of Kolkata. Boys were playing cricket and visitors sitting on the wide grass land. This big open air maidan is a gift for the city dwellers, but needs cleaning.

The beauty of Kolkata. A must visit location. Accessible by Metro Rail and Roadways. A morning walk, tea sipping, a bit of free hand exercise in the early morning may kick start your day. A horse driven carriage ride is a bliss.

With all the sports clubs, impromptu games of cricket the Maidan is always buzzing. The Victoria Monument, St Paul's and Fort William are all here. Spend a morning here wandering around, especially if you are there on a Sunday

This is a very good place for a picnic in winter. Morning walks are also good to do. People simply run and jog here to be physically fit and mentally awesome. Children and elders too enjoy the horse rides. You will be glad to visit this place.

The maidan in front of the Victoria Memorial was a much cleaner place when I visited as a child in 1990s. The maidan is dirty; but the horse rides are wonderful . Though the charges are high ; but the ride with family is worth the penny spent.

Maidan in the heart of the city of Kolkata is a vast expanse of open land which is unique for such a large city with a population much in excess of 10 millions. I have visited many countries and their large cities but such a big open space in the center of the city is very rare. Belonging as it... More

Maidan is the place one would go to -- to catch the Sun or the wind. Disembark at the Maidan metro & cross the street to reach the greens. Winter strolls are especially appealing.

This is a pleasant open space in the heart of Kolkata. Large open fields, strewn with rubbish, unfortunately. Locals seems to enjoy it. It's a nice escape from the congestion of the streets.
