Description
Kolkata is the city of Joy, Contrast and Culture. Once it was the capital of British India till 1912, and now the city is the capital of West Bengal. A visit to this cultural capital of India may bring visitors to be in touch with combination of a rich 300 years old history, heritage and vibrant modern life & culture of different communities.

In the year 1687, Job Charnock - an English trader and agent of East India Company, set up a trading post in the Sutanati village on the east bank of the river Ganges along with two adjoining villages "Gavindapur" and "Kolikata". Gradually this small trading post started growing as an important business hub and soon become the gateway to the mystic east. In 1696 the old Fort William was constructed and those three villages were united to the city of Calcutta which played a significant role in shaping the centuries of Indian history.

In these three hundred years, the Kolkata has grown from a mere fishing village to one of the largest modern and culturally rich cities in the world where many modern movements began in art, cinema and theater, science and industry, retaining the aura of the past.

A tourist envisages Calcutta in different hues and colours. The city offers beauty and history entwined in culture and heritage. Calcutta is a city of contrast, medley of present and past, old and new, science and history, culture and entertainment, malls, multiplexes and old markets, flyovers and dirt stricken roads, high rises and slums. And the beauty of the city lies there.
