What else can you do in Kolkata?
Okay, so there’s a lot of stuff to do at Moustache Offbeat. But unless you’re here for a staycation, you will probably want to get out of the building at some point. Worry not, we have answers. Here’s a brief list.
Victoria Memorial Hall
Victoria Memorial Hall: find the bronze statue!
The absolute most popular place to visit in Kolkata is the Victoria Memorial Hall, a British era museum. It’s about 8 kilometres away from Moustache via cab and is open from 10 AM to 5 PM on all days of the week except Mondays. Note that the gardens outside the museum have longer open hours from 5:30 AM to 6:15 PM on all days of the week. The museum itself has an entry fee of INR 20 and the gardens charge INR 10 per person. Notably, there’s also a light and sound show after hours with its own INR 20 entry fee. One of the highlights of the museum is the sixteen-foot-tall rotating bronze statue of victory that is mounted at the top of the building. If you’re visiting Kolkata, this is a must see.
Howrah Bridge lit up prettily at night
Kolkata is a city full of grand architecture, and the best example of this is the Howrah Bridge. Given that it’s a publicly used bridge, it’s free of charge or tolls and open 24/7. It’s 13 kilometres from Moustache, but both Science City and the Eden Gardens lie on the way there so you can club all three trips. It’s also right on the way to the Howrah Railway Station in case that’s your final destination. Now for some trivia: Howrah Bridge is the sixth longest cantilever bridge on Earth and probably the most popular. Why? Well, it sees over 100,000 vehicles and 150,000 pedestrians crossing it per day. Maybe you can be one of them.
Kalighat Kali Temple
The city of Kolkata is also deeply tied to religion. Perhaps the most famous temple in Kolkata is the Kalighat Kali Temple dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Kali. It’s about 10 kilometres away from Moustache whether you go by cab or by bus. Conveniently, there’s a bus going there every thirty minutes and the fare is only INR 9. Kalighat Kali is open on all days of the week from 5 AM – 2 PM and 5 PM to 10:30 PM. There’s no entry fee to the temple. The temple holds a striking and unique Kali idol crafted from sandstone and gold with an even more striking legend behind it. Another must see.
They say the real heart of a city lies in its streets. Clearly, Park Street proves the phrase true. Officially named Mother Teresa Sarani, this street is a hub for restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, and more. The street is open from 8 AM to 9 PM on all days of the week. It’s only six kilometres away from the hostel and has no entry fee either, but given the amount of shopping you’ll want to do… it’s probably best to carry some money.
