Detailed Itinerary : Culture Vulture Kolkata Day Tour

We have designed this tour packages by focusing on the main sightseeings according to other travellers, but here you can customize this tour as you desire.

Once you’ve been picked up from your hotel in Kolkata at 8:00 AM, we’ll dive right into city life on your Kolkata tour! You’ll go first to the famous flower market and observe the fast pace of life in Kolkata and the local Bengali culture. Among the array of flowers are the vendors themselves, selling golden-yellow marigolds and wearing the strands of flowers around their waists like long flowery skirts - a perfect photo op, indeed! We’ll proceed from here to Lal Dighi (meaning “red water” in Bengali), famously known as Tank Square or Dalhousie Square, located in the heart of Kolkata. It’s believed this water tank was constructed during the British era, and so named because of the color the water turned during the festival of Holi or Dol in Bengal. You’ll also walk past various government buildings and the Writer’s Building. Next up, you’ll visit one of the oldest churches in Kolkata, built on the old burial ground where Job Charnock, the city’s founder, was laid to rest.

The church is known for its intricate wood carvings and marvelous glasswork, as well as a da Vinci-inspired painting of The Last Supper (but with an Indian touch, of course), by artist John Zoffany. From there, your Kolkata tour will take you to Jain Temple, also known as the “Jewel Box Temple,” situated in the northeast corner of the city. This exquisite temple is an ornate mass of mirrors, colored stones, and glass mosaics. You’ll finish off our city tour with a visit to Kumartuli, where idols of gods and goddesses are made out of clay. You’ll get to see the craftsmen at work, carving by hand without using any machinery. When the tour ends, you will be driven back to your hotel.
