Kolkata (Calcutta) Sights

B. B. D. Bagh

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The hub of all Kolkata, this square is still often referred to by its former name, Dalhousie Square. Once the administrative home of the East India Company, it later gave way to late-Victorian buildings used by the Colonial Civil Service and now houses the Indian government bureaucracy. Foot traffic is thick here.
