Known for its rich culture, Jaipur is the place where I reside and right from my childhood I always have a fascination towards Indian culture and love visiting monuments. During my last
visit to Kolkata, I hardly had time to visit historical places or tourist spots due to my busy business schedule. For the past days, am planning for a trip on exploring historical places around
India and decided to visit Kolkata which was missed last time. Since I love visiting forts and knowing its glorious histories, I gathered
details about the historical places in Kolkata and started my exciting journey.
My childhood friend who is also a culture/nature lover was more than happy to join my trip. He took the responsibility of booking the tickets for the journey. Since I like luxurious travel once in a while, my dear friend booked the ticket in one of the first class flights with exciting amenities. The very next day we boarded the flight and land in the beautiful city of Rasogulla and Mishthi Doi. We had already booked our rooms in one of the luxurious star hotels in the city. I had a shower and planned the activity for the day.
Our first plan was to visit Tipu Sultan Mosque since it was quite near to our place of stay. After the sumptuous breakfast in the hotel restaurant, we set our journey to the Mosque. This is one of the famous places in Kolkata and anybody who loves visiting monuments will fall in love at the first sight seeing this historical place. Our guide explained about the intricate beauty of the building and the history attached to it. This was built by Prince Gulam Mohammad who is the youngest son of Tipu Sultan in the year 1832 and it was later restored in the 1980s. The green vaulted architecture, high walls and archways with intricate carvings bring a sense of serenity in every individual who visit this place. After the tranquil visit to this mosque, we decided to taste typical Kolkata food and entered into a local cuisine to enjoy the traditional Bengali culinary delights. Our taste buds soaked in the luscious food like Jhalmuri, Macher Jhol and countless Rasogullas!
