Victoria Memorial Hall
Fascinating history and culture. Enjoyed walking in the gardens after looking at the artwork. The paintings are beautiful but I couldn't take any photos because photography is not allowed inside the building. I thought that the ticket price was worth it for this attraction.

Kolkata Tours
The walking tours are amazing and because they are available all year round it was easy to fit a tour into our schedule. We saw so many sites, that were not mentioned in any guidebook, and it was interesting to see the city through a local's eyes. Our guide knew a lot about the city's history and the people who live there. I recommend going in the morning because the city becomes hot and crowded later on in the day.

Re. Mother Theresa's Home
While you are at Mother Theresa's Home you can also went go for a walk around the monastery, which offers an escape from the busy city.

Mother Theresa's Home
My visit to Mother Theresa's Home was moving and I got to read more about her life, as well as visit her tomb. I spent 45 minutes there before going to a nearby restaurant for lunch. Don't forget that the home is closed on Thursdays.

Victoria Memorial Garden Musical Fountain
Our children loved the musical fountain show and entrance was free so it was a great bonus after a day of paying for the family to enter different sites. The show starts around 7pm and make sure that you get there a bit early to get a good spot. For 15 minutes we watched the cascading water lit by different colours and choreographed to music.
