Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta was the capital of British India between 1700 and 1912. It was nicknamed City of Palaces and also City of Joy. During the British rule, Kolkata experienced an activity of construction building with architectural variety influenced mostly by European styles like Neo-Gothic, Baroque, Neo-classical but also Oriental and Islamic styles. Today, many of these structures are in various stages of decay, but some of the major buildings of this period are well maintained and have been declared as heritage structures. Kolkata is loud, busy and chaotic like any other Indian city but it is friendly, it is a city you feel, more than just visit and there is just so much to do and see here.
