The Maidan

The Maidan Review

Known as Kolkata's "green lung," the city's expansive park is dotted with some of its most significant attractions and is highly prized by its citizens, who turn out in the morning for sports and pony rides, and in the evening for snacks and carriage rides. The area came into existence when forests were cleared to give Fort William a clear line of fire.
