Description
Introduction

Kolkata (Calcutta) is the capital of the state of West Bengal and one of the largest and most interesting cities in the world. Situated on the eastern bank of the Hooghly, a major distributary of the river Ganga, Kolkata is the only metropolis on India's 'River of Life'. It is also the gateway to the entire east and northeast of India.

Three sleepy villages called Kalikata, Sutanuti and Gobindopur were combined together by the British East India Company to form a trade-post more than 300 years ago (1690). From then onwards started the city's journey till it became the 'Second City of the British Empire'. Colonial era relics and ambience still exist in this vast, populous city, which combines chaos and continuity, poverty and beauty, neglect and regeneration at one and the same time. Culture, clubs and cuisine are the same time. Culture, clubs and cuisine are the three 'C's' of Calcutta that impress and attract visitors.

Kolkata has stepped into the 21st century with great zest – chic malls, huge condominiums, info-tech parks, and a pulsating nightlife define the new face of the city.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
Намаскар! Честно говоря, сомневался. Но сегодня получил свой заказ. Порадовала упаковка, упаковано всё очень тщательно и аккуратно. Большое спасибо, как раз подарок к Новому Году! Namaskar! Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
