Kolkata (Calcutta) Things to Do: 224 reviews and 578 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.
