Victoria Memorial

, Kolkata

One Time Only
An everlasting impression one carries from Kolkata is the shining white Victoria memorial surrounded by lush greenery and wide roads. Conceptualised and created by Sir William Emerson – President, British institute of Architects in 1921 the Victoria Memorial provides an idea of how the riches plundered from India were splurged on pleasing the Royal family. This memorial dedicated to Queen Victoria provides an insight into Indian History right from the arrival of British to the Independence era.

Amazing paintings and photographs by British officers unfold an Indian subcontinent hitherto unknown to many of us. The photographs and sculptures of numerous historic figures also adorn this museum spread over an area of 64 acres. Watch out for an exact replica of a busy Kolkata street from the 18th century. Be sure to reach the memorial prior to 1600hr in order to enjoy the contents for the museum guards are pretty strict about the closing timings of 1800hr. A special light show is also presented at 1930 hr daily except Mondays.
