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

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
Beverly, USA
