This is one of several sights to see while here. The contrast between old Calcutta and these monuments is striking. Its worth having a tour to get the feel for this city of 15 million

Victoria memorial was built by the Britishers trying to make it identical of Taj Mahal. It is bigger and is a must visit. Lovely architecture and the museum is excellent for people to know about the rulers and history of Kolkata.

Visit anytime during the day for a quiet walk and admire the beauty of this architectural wonder. There is a museum inside the memorial with an additional entry fee. Do note that there are different ticket prices for Indians and foreigners.
