Before Delhi became the capital of British India in 1911, Dalhousie Square (or ‘BBD Bagh’ as it’s known these days) in Kolkata, was the country’s commercial and political hub. Site of the East India Company’s most imposing buildings, it epitomizes the spirit of the Empire at its zenith. Our tour will walk you through the highlights, including the splendidly domed General Post Office and Neoclassical St John’s Parish Church. You’ll also stop at a couple of typical Bengali street food stalls along the way to give a sense of modern life in the district, which recently gained Heritage Zone status.
