The entrance with the Doric coloumns is very imposing. You need to cross railway tracks at a level crossing and enter the ghat area. The entire area is green with lots of trees. The maintenance leaves much to be desired. The area had rubbish strewn...More

If you are interested in Hindu funeral practices, you should visit this place. The line between life and death is always a blurry one in India, no more so than in Calcutta.

A surprisingly quiet and peaceful place on the banks of the Hooghly - as the Ganges is called within Kolkata - to sit and watch the mesmeric river flowing.

Beautiful historical place in Kolkata... Good for a day trip and night photography. James Princep building and the nearby 2nd Hooghly bridge is the main attraction.
