Next stop was Kalighat Temple, 500 years old Goddess Kali temple is equally good to visit as Dakshineshwar Temple. And we have seen the shots from there in a famous movie of Vidya Balan's KAHANI. White uniform wearing Policemen in Calcutta can be found everywhere near the temple and you're aren't allowed to photograph here. From Kalighat, we headed to Howrah Bridge and VidyaSagar Setu. My personal favorite is Vidya Sagar Setu because it exactly looks like Brookyn Bridge in NYC. You don't believe me? Leave a ping and I'll share the pictures i have clicked and then you'll probably trust me. You can do boating there in a happening boat with some old songs playing and romantic lighting just for 150 bucks. Rights by the side is millenium park where you can see love birds hanging around and some seriously tasty bengali Puchka.
Other places I saw on the fly like Tipu Sultan Mosque, Shaheed Minar and how could i forget, world famous Eden Gardens. And ending the day with it being my Birthday, I landed up in Park street for some good food in One Step Up And hopped to a 100 years old Jewish Bakery Nahoum and sons in New Market(worth going if you love bakery stuff) to get fruit cake on my birthday and some sweet cheese.
So this was what i had from my birthday trip which was cheaper then what i had to spend if i was partying in Hauz Khas or Cyber Hub.
