"Old Town Hall" Kolkata (Calcutta) Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Kolkata (Calcutta) Things to Do: 225 reviews and 580 photos

 
 

The Town Hall was constructed in the year 1811 by Colonel John Garstin. The Hall, designed in the Palladian style, was constructed to complement the Government House. At present, the Town Hall houses a Municipal Court and a government food- rationing department as well as the Kolkata Panorama, a collection of models and interactive exhibits covering the last 500 years of Bengali history, which I didn't enter to see.
