Dalhousie or BBD Bag Walking Tour 
A walk around Dalhousie Square or BBD Bag as they call it today. It is the central district of Kolkata and was once the administrative and commercial hub of British India. Originally named Calcutta, it was renamed Kolkata on January 1, 2001. Till 1911, it was the capital of India. Writers’ Buildings located here was the seat of power till September 2013, when the restoration of this 18th century building began. On this approximately 1.30-hour walk, discover the magnificent buildings the British constructed along well-laid-out roads. Difficult to believe now but it was once known as the “City of Palaces.” listen to the stories of stately buildings that earned the city a name it hardly deserves today.
