Kolkata - this is the place were really the British entered into India and the East India Trading Company. In the beginning there was nothing part from shallow waters and a small fishing village. The British took the place fro trading purpose and build it up. At one time it was the second largest city of the British Empire. And it was the Capital of the Indian Part of the Empire, before the capital was moved to New Delhi. I stayed there for four nights and went from the Eden Garten Cricket stadium to the Victoria Memorial to Mother Teresas house.
