Travel back in time to this "City of joy" called Kolkata
The suspension type balanced cantilever bridge, third longest of its type during its construction, still remains an engineering marvel. It's the symbol of Kolkata and forgetting uber,  a ride through this bridge in the typical yellow taxi of Kolkata gifts you an old world charm, exclusive to Calcutta.
The market is a riot of colors, supplemented by an interesting crowd - especially for a photographer. That's the reason the place features on the Lonely Planet and attracts lot of camera equipped foreign tourists. Next to the market is a ghat which offers a panoramic view of the Howrah Bridge.
