Kolkata is one of the most historically & culturally influential cities in all of Asia.
While it’s a typical Indian city with the noise, air pollution, and narrow, crowded, sweaty side-streets, there’s an air of sophistication that hangs in the air, giving the people of Kolkata a grandeur and magnificence to be proud of.
Lots of Indian culture’s movers and shakers staked their claim on the city and left a hallmark of culture and influence that will never be removed.
The British Raj, Mother Teresa, Sir Ronald Ross, and Rabindranath Tagore (the first non-European to capture the Nobel Prize in Literature) all left their impression on Indian history, changing it forever.
