Kolkata - All India Tour
  • Kolkata

Kolkata is located in the state of West Bengal in north eastern India. The population is around 20 million Kolkata was once the capital of the British East India empire.

The Hooghly river runs through Kolkata and its banks are home to many people who sleep, wash and work in the immediate vicinity of the river. Below are some early morning photos from around the riverside near the  iconic Howrah bridge.

 We spent a few days exploring the densley populated streets of Kolkata and the common tourist sites. As with most Indian cities, extreme poverty and wealth are to be found only twenty paces apart in some form or another. We felt the city had a lot of character with a plesant and relaxed feel and we enjoyed our time there. Below are some images from the streets of this vibrant city.
