Revisiting the Old Kolkata Charm – Dalhousie

November 8, 2010

Kolkata is considered to be the city with a big heart and richer colonial history. With its upcoming East-West Metro rails and establishment of the Jyoti Basu Nagar, the city is going forward to meet the next century, but it still hasn’t left behind the last century and even the one before that. I got the wonderful opportunity to see it again this afternoon.

Dalhousie Square with GPO or the General Post Office situated in the centre of the heart of the city, is the commercial centre of Kolkata of the yesteryears. There are so many buildings around the GPO that sings of a glorious past and lovely and strong present. The BSNL telecommunications offices,  Raj Bhavan and of course the Writer’s Buildings are some of the imposing examples of the old world architecture.

Here are some of the pictures I took around this area.
