With over 14 million permanent residents, Kolkata is the third largest metropolitan area in India. Kolkata, then known as Calcutta, was also the first capital of British India from 1772 to 1911. The period of British rule left an indelible mark on the city most notably in terms of the colonial era architecture in the central part of the city. Modern day Kolkata is a thriving economic and cultural centre with a large concentration of educational and scientific institutions. Kolkata is also a city with conspicuous poverty. Around a third of the city’s population live in slums and an estimated 40% are employed in the informal sector of the economy without employment rights. The less fortunate residents of the city live on very meagre incomes in poor conditions.
Kolkata is an exciting city to simply wander around. The city has many busy colourful markets, notable cuisine in both restaurants and on the street, and the wide Hooghly river running through the centre which is pleasant to walk alongside in the mornings and early evenings. In terms of major tourist attraction the India Museum, the vast and impressive Victoria Memorial, Fort William, the Marble Palace, the Belar Math temple and the Botanical Gardens are amongst the most popular. Tourists should also take the opportunity to take a cooking course or witness local craftsmen at work, such as the Kumartuli idol-makers.
