  • Kolkata seems has not many attractions, and Victoria Memorial has not much things to see. Visitors also have to join a long queue in front of the ticket counter, and 2 entrance gates. Total wasted...  more »

  • Iconic symbol of the city. I loved the place... It is one of the best heritage place in the middle of busy city. The best thing about this place is the wonderful architecture of the monument. Victoria Memorial is known worldwide built during British rule in India for the queen. Inside the memorial there is a museum where you can see the dresses of the queen.... There are different kinds of weapons which are kept over there that were used during that era. There are various other things as well that you can see .....One can explore inside Victoria memorial. The structure of the memorial is just amazing and mesmerizing.... It is very attractive to look at. The chariot ride in front of the Victoria Memorial gives a memorable experience to all the person. The fountain show in front of the memorial is just awesome. Overall it's a perfect place for outing with friends and family.
  • Victoria Memorial is one of the most famous historical monuments of India. The building architecture is not only superb but also elegant. The huge space campus is so beautiful and worth spending the entire day. The Central hall having the statue of Queen Victoria is spectacular. The museum inside the building is not to be missed at all You can witness the entire history of Bengal here There are some rare photographs and articles and famous personalities account in the museum And not the least, what a place for photography indeed!
