For the last few years i have been visiting this place of idol makers just before each Durga Puja. Somehow the process of idol making influences me in thinking that every time one can restart, there is no end. A new generation comes and gives life to new idol, the spirit does not die.
The oldest golf club in India. All most all the establishment in Calcutta this club too is a throwback of Raj era ..the inside of the club contrasts with the approach to the club the road with unkempt shacks at one side. Inside is lush green golf course with golfers in designers attire. This club has helped many caddies to become professional golfer. No doubt the members feel proud to be member of this wonderful golf club.
Visiting this place gives an opportunity of visiting Raj history in that magnificent monument and added to that is the flowing Ganges. The second Hoogly bridge looms in the background. The river front has been beautified 2 years back and it tempts to take a long walk along the river. Many Bengali films have been shot in this monument of Princep.
Credit goes to ASI for the restoration and maintenance of this historical edifice. A must visit for tourists. Built in 16th century,started by Humayun and completed by Sher Sah Suri and his descendants.Love the lush green grass of the lawns.
