Things to do

1. Mother Teresa House  

         Mother Teresa, an Albanian Roman Catholic missionary, did a lot of her work in India, especially right in the heart of Kolkata. Her former home and charity in Kolkata is now known as the Motherhouse, and inside the modest mission is Mother Teresa’s tomb. After paying respect, you can walk through a small museum that displays a few of her personal belongings, and proceed to go up a flight of stairs to view into the room where Mother Teresa sat at her desk and wrote letters, prayed, and lived.

2. Kalighat Kali Temple

      This temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess of Kali, Kolkata’s Kalighat Kali Temple is one of the most visited and sacred sites in the city. The temple attracts thousands of pilgrims and other Hindu devotees each day

3. South Park Street Cemetery

           Park street, It was quiet and peaceful  place, within this decaying ancient cemetery. The cemetery was set up in 1767 and includes around 1,600 tombs.If the weeping trees and the moss covered tombs aren’t already scary enough, the occasional squawk of a crow will make things a little freakier.

 4.  Sir Stuart Hogg Market

          Inside the market itself is sort of just like any other market in the world, there are sections for just about anything you could want. But the real beauty of New Market is the chaotic action that surrounds the market on all sides.Delicious restaurants, Kolkata street food stalls, pushcart transporters, and swarms of people are a few of the interesting things to observe. The action seems to never slow down.

 5. Victoria Memorial Hall

           Rather than being in West Bengali, when visiting the Victoria Memorial Hall, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Europe. The iconic structure in Kolkata is dedicated to Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom who is also referred to as the Empress of India.Along with its British and European architecture, the hall also includes some Mughal Indian design elements. Victoria Memorial is 103 meters in length, 69 meters wide, and 56 meters high.Victoria Memorial is now open to the public for its surrounding gardens and interior museum.

6. Mullik Ghat Flower Market

          Located directly under the Howrah Bridge is the bustling Mullik Ghat flower market. The market, which is open all hours of the day, is a lively scene of bright yellow and orange flowers. Vendors and porters continually walk and run up and down the market, auctioning off their stock. Walking across the Howrah Bridge, which is one of the world’s busiest pedestrian bridges, is another one of the top things to do in Kolkata. After browsing and observing the flower market, take a walk across the bridge for great views of Kolkata, the Hooghly River, and the constant stream of people crossing the bridge while carrying giant loads.

 7. Indian Museum

           Kolkata’s Indian Museum is one of the most significant, and the first museum to be founded in India. The huge museum has collections and galleries spanning many different subjects; Archeology, art, geology, and even an exhibition on Egypt (and a mummy) can be found in the museum.Especially on the weekends, the Indian Museum can be pretty packed – so either go early to avoid the crowds or just enjoy it with the crowds.

8. Belur Math

           The Temple, located on the banks of the Hooghly River (branches off from the Ganges), was founded by Swami Vivekananda and is now the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Math religious organization. The temple incorporates architecture and designs from Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity. 

9. Dakshineswar Kali Temple

               On the opposite side of the Hooghly River and a boat ride away is Kolkata’s Dakshineswar Kali Temple. The huge Hindu temple attracts big crowds of worshippers and Hindus that bathe in the adjacent river. Seeing the temple, it almost looks like a painting. The entire compound is sort of like a fair, set up with lots of Kolkata street food snacks, shopping stalls, and plenty of Hindu religious objects for sale.

10.Howrah Bridge

An iconic landmark of Kolkata, Howrah Bridge is a massive steel bridge constructed over the Hooghly River. It is considered to be among the longest cantilever bridges in the world.It was the third longest cantilever bridge at the time of its construction, but now it is the sixth longest one of its types.
