Park Street

Also known as the Mother Teresa Street, this was originally a burial ground and presently one of the most important places of Kolkata. This is also known as the 'Food street' or the 'Street which never sleeps'. This is the place where most of the oubs and restaurants of Kolkata are situated and has been an entertainment square of Kolkata for many years now. There are also a number of important buildings here such as the St. Xaviers' Church and College, the Asiatic Society Building, The South Park Cemetery and the 7th Century Aventist Church. The region stretches from Chowringee Road to Park Circus and is also a place which was a favourite during the British Era of Calcultta. You will still be able to see a lot of buildings of the British Era standing strong here. This place is such that you get the real essence of charming Kolkata here.

4. Park Street, KolkataThe Park Street Festival, popularly known as the Kolkata Christmas Festival, is back. This street in town would be the most illuminated during the Christmas season and even before. The entire length of the roadway would be decked out with Christmas decor, including tinsel bulbs and fairy lights. After 6 o'clock on a frigid winter evening, the street's pathway is illuminated, creating a fairytale-like scene that makes for the most Instagrammable photos. You may witness a huge Christmas tree that has been adorned with ornaments, lights, snowflakes, presents, and much more by crossing Palk Street to Allen Park.All of the performers, from Usha Uthup to Shane Hyrapiet, are here to put on a wonderful show with church bands and youth organizations. Any festival's relationship to food is directly correlated, therefore the streets of Kolkata's main market are lined with dozens of eateries selling baked goods and plum cakes.When : Allen Park Festival: December 20 to December 23Park Street Festival: December 26 to December 30.Time : From 4.30pmVenue : Allen Park, Park StreetEntry Fee : Free of cost

6 pm: Park StreetAs my day came to an end, I spent the last couple of hours at Kolkata’s original joy factor, Park Street. I walked down the lane and stepped into Peter Cat to gorge on their iconic Chelo Kebabs and relive the British nostalgia. Do not miss the signature Bloody Mary as well. As time was limited and the food options unlimited, I then went to Mocambo and tried the exotic Prawn Cocktails and chicken a la Kiev. If Chinese is your cuisine, head to Flavours of China. Needless to say, you cannot miss Flurys. A part of the heritage of the city, the confectionery section and all their excellent sweet and savoury items, cakes and breads await you.
