City of Joy in pics

Howrah Bridge This bridge contains no nuts and bolts - all joins are through studs.

Vidyasagar Setu Copied from Golden Gate bridge SF ,this bridge took 15 years to build from 1978 - 93 !!!

Victoria Memorial This was built between 1906-1921 in an architectural style similar to Taj Mahal as a memorial for Queen Victoria.Now it is famous for the nooks and corners where lovers get TOO intimate !!!

Eden Gardens The largest cricket stadium in the world.Watching a cricket match here sitting in the Ranji gallery is an experience of a lifetime. The venue is equally loved and hated by the cricketers depending on which side the passionate spectators had shown their passion!!!

St. Pauls Cathedral One of the finest cathedrals in India contains mural paintings depicting the life of St. Paul.

Rickshaw Made famous by the cover page on Dominique Lapierre's City of Joy this has become one of the trademarks of Kolkata.

Tram One of the other trademarks of Kolkata.If you have plenty of time a trip in the tram across Maidan is a worthwhile experience.
