Things to Do in Kolkata

  • Digha Mohana Fish Market

    Fish is a staple food of the Bengalis. When in Kolkata, try savouring seafood and it is guaranteed that you won't forget the experience! Although, in Kolkata there are many markets selling all kinds of river and sea fishes, there's none like the bustling Digha Mohana Fish Market. Fish lovers must visit this place, not just to buy the fish of their choice, but to witness the crowd, chaos and the unusual energy in the air. The market is located on the seaside, and if you visit the same in the early morning, you will find fish trollers arriving here with plenty of fish. From Tiger Prawns to King Prawns, Kingfish, Shrimps, Lobster, Bhetki, Crabs and more, types of fishes sold here are seemingly endless.

  • Birla Temple

    Adding boundless sanctity to 'City of Joy'- Kolkata, the Birla Temple stands favourably on Asutosh Chowdhury Avenue, Ballygunge. It was built by the Birla family in an area of 44 kathas. Started in the year 1970, the construction of the temple took 26 years to complete. The temple was inaugurated by Dr. Karan Singh on 21st February 1996 and Pran Prathistha was done on the same day. Dedicated to Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha, this temple is visited by countless devotees and visitors every year. On the auspicious occasion of Shri Krishna Janmashtami (the birthday of Lord Krishna), maximum number of devotees throng this temple from places near and far.

    Built of white marble, this temple boasts of brilliant Rajasthani temple architecture. On the left and right sides of the temple shikhar (dome), there are idols of Goddess Durga and Lord Shiva, respectively. In appearance, the temple resembles Bhubaneswar’s renowned Lingaraj Temple.
