The City of Kolkata was in full bloom during end of 19th Century and in 20th Century. The British built the city in the pattern of 19th century /early 20th Century of London. Naturally lot of beautiful / heritage buildings were decaying. While many beautiful buildings were razed and sold to land sharks mostly in the last 30years or so, many organisations came forward in their rescue. As a result now many buildings are now being restored in Kolkata. Hopefully, someday we shall be able to see many beautifully buildings fully restored.
Many corporate house like cigarette giant ITC have restored and maintained their house
Addendum: ( 14th Sept'2010): I wrote this tip in 2008, when I mentioned about the Cottage Industry building will be restored to it's glory. Now if you cross/ move in Esplanade area, you will be able to see, how beautifully it is being restored. It will get completed in 2010 itself. The building is being painted in white , with gold at the top. Looks beautiful! I shall put more pictures once it is fully restored.
Address: Jawaharlal Nehru Road.
Directions: in the Esplanade area , Chowringhee road.
