    Tipu Sultan Mosque

    Located on busy Esplanade area, this mosque is a treat to the eyes. The minarets and the mosque itself are a photographer’s delight and ingenuity owing to the limited space available for a good shot.

    Thats the symbol of the city and Kolkata is famous for that. Entry fees is more for international travellers and less for domestic travellers.

    Bengal Ficus at the Botanical Garden

    Under the giant Ficus

    Under the giant Ficus is a paved road all around. I never had such a long walk, just under one tree.
    When you go round, you have a good sight at the many air-roots, reaching the soil at many places.
