Kolkata, India - City of Joy

Cityscapes of Kolkata, India.
Will be updated with the best pictures of Kolkata, India from photographers all over the world.

Indian cities have spaces to grow, and unlike their European counterparts, don't rebuild on top of their existing city. For Kolkata, the notion of Indian expansion is the case, where a completely new city is being erected in the eastern fringes, dubiously named New Town or Rajarhat.


Greater Kolkata Metropolitan Area is divided into several regions.

They are but not limited to:
  • Central Kolkata(CBD & BBD Square)
  • Salt Lake City(Bidhan Nagar)
  • New Town(Rajarhat)
  • North Kolkata(Dum Dum)
  • South Kolkata(Tollygunj)
  • West Kolkata(Howrah)

For the sake of recognition, I will list the respective area's name for every iconic scenes, monuments, vistas, parks, buildings, bridges, etc.
