Day 1

The beauty of the architecture of Victoria Memorial is far-famed which makes it one of the best places to visit in Kolkata. So, I decided to go there first.  Made up of white Makrana marble and encircled by beautiful gardens, this museum is constructed in the memory of Queen Victoria. I could see couples having a great time there, clicking photos and beholding the amazing structure of the place. However,  the weather was unbearably hot and humid which made it impossible for me to stay on its outer area for long. I asked someone there to click some photographs of mine and then moved into the inner part of the museum. The place has 25 galleries with breathtaking pictures, oil paintings, sculptures and other such antique articles associated with great people from the history like W. Emerson, Shakespeare, etc. One of the most fascinating things here is the Achkan jacket and a lock of hair of Tatya Tope. It is undoubtedly one of the most enthralling places in the city.
