Majestic building, sadly Queen Victoria's statue in front of the front gate has been replaced by a poorly made statue of a Bengali leader. The surrounding garden is a mess and needs attention.

I went along with my family to visit Victoria Memorial as my brother was visiting us from my native place. This was my 3rd visit to Victoria Memorial and I realised that there is so much to actually understand from this place that you need to spend sometime to read the detailed history of India.

Beautiful colonial building, moderately maintained.Though the huge garden all around the building , which is right at the centre of the town is a welcome. Must visit in Kolkata.

This is one of several sights to see while here. The contrast between old Calcutta and these monuments is striking. Its worth having a tour to get the feel for this city of 15 million
