Kolkata Maidan

Kolkata Maidan

Kolkata is a city chaotic, full of traffic, pollution, noise and odors, which, although in my opinion can give the charm to a city so, it can become suffocating after a while. Like any big city in India, Calcutta has among its attractions a huge park, the size and the location could be considered the Central Park in India, where locals and visitors who come here find a safe haven where the air is cool and do not think for a few minutes to the city that offers them shelter.
