Sovabazar - The Star still shines

Kolkata (Calcutta)

The ever-vital hub of traditional Bengali culture, the locals area, Sovabazar is all this and much more. This area contains a fascinatingly cosmopolitan blend of the seemingly incongruous architectural forms (from Islamic to Baroque, from Victorian to Bengali) which made up the old world dwellings of the city's wealthier Bengalis.

Pricing:  $ 40 per person for minimum 2 participants.

No one who wishes to savor the authentic flavor of Bengali culture and cuisine can afford to miss out on this walk.

Bengali lunch (pre fixed set menu) will be served at the end of the tour, Restaurant -Bhajahari Manna (Star Theatre campus). Bengali meal and sweets are famous worldwide and it would be a crime not to treat your-self during the visit to kolkata. Fresh water fish would be the highlight of the tour.
