    The first stop is the monumental symbol of Kolkata – Victoria Memorial. Victoria Memorial is designed by Sir William Emerson as an example of Indo-Saracenic style. The architecture of Victoria has elements from the Mughals that adds to the elegance of the structure. The beautiful garden was designed by Lord Redesdale and Sir David Prain. This special memorial was established to honor Queen Victoria. In the year 1906, the foundation stone was laid down to support this beautiful structure. Now this epitome of elegance is converted into a stunning museum.

It was designed by a famous engineer of that time – Major William Niam Forbes and was assisted by C. k. Robinson. It was heavily influenced by the tower and the shrine of the Norwich Cathedral. In 1934, a major earthquake effected Kolkata and the tower was badly affected. The tower was then rebuilt keeping the structure Harry tower of Canterbury Cathedral. In the year 1874, St. Paul’s was consecrated.
