To the east of the Memorial, you will be able to find St Paul’s Cathedral, one of the most important churches of India with its impressive stained-glass windows. Continue on to the National Library in the stately Belvedere House which actually has the largest collection of books in India. There will also be a visit to the Indian Museum which is the largest in the country with sections of Art, Archaeology, Anthropology, Geology, Zoology, and Industry.
Afterwards, you’ll make your way to the Dakshineswar Kali Temple and Belur Math.
