10 best places to visit in India

Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta (and before that, the city of palaces, much cooler in our opinion), is the capital and largest city of West Bengal. Located on the east bank of the Hooghly River about 100 miles (160 km) north-east of Chennai (Madras), it is a major cultural and industrial center.

Kolkata is home to some important people. (Rabindranath Tagore, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and Mother Teresa, to name a few). And the city plays an important role in Indian industries such as textiles, coal mining and heavy technology. It has earned the title of “Manchester of India,” but we think that doesn’t do justice to the unique culture and heritage that make this one of the best places to visit in India. Kolkata has many tourist attractions including museums and galleries, and a delicious cuisine that includes influences from the Muslim communities that have ruled here for 200 years.
