Really should be closed. Probably wonderful once, decades ago. Now, overgrown, neglected, no functional benches, toilets dreadful and ponds stagnant.

The Eden Gardens really lives up to its name as one of India's best cricketing venues. Just like Lords' and other stadia across the world allow access to the stadium even during non-match days, Eden Gardens too should do so.

Worth watching IPL matches. In case possible take lounge or stand club stand. You will love the atmosphere. You can also go inside and have a glimpse certain days. Outside food and drinks not allowed. Quality of food is below average litterally local taste.

Eden Gardens once the focal point for events in Calcutta is now a dry dust bowl with lots of thrash everywhere. There is nothing to see here.
