The City of Joy: Kolkata
Kolkata has been regarded as one of the most important cities in India ever since the East India Company set base in Bengal, from where it began its trading operations. Apart from its historical significance, Kolkata is also the largest city in the Indian state of West Bengal and one of the largest cities in the country. The vibrant city spans across a humongous area of about 1900 square kilometres, which also includes 185 kilometres of prime metropolitan area.

Being the capital of West Bengal, Kolkata enjoys exclusive location benefits as it is well-linked to all other parts of the country by means of national highways and a comprehensive railway network. While one part of Kolkata is the culture-rich city draped in colonial attire, there is another facet to the expanding city which includes its rapidly developing, futuristic suburbs. As the economy of the city had slowed down considerably in the post-independence era, Kolkata has witnessed most of its urbanization over the last decade, i.e. 2000 onwards.

Be it buildings of colonial times, museums or libraries, heritage hotels, memorials, bridges across various parts of the city, amusement parks in and around Kolkata or the local markets and shopping malls, this city has something in store for everyone.
Kolkata being the capital of West Bengal, property in Kolkata has been highly in demand and this has led to the city expanding to adjoining suburbs.
