Eden Gardens, Kolkata (Calcutta)

The noisiest stadium in India, Eden Gardens has witnessed some of the finest matches in the history of cricket. Before it underwent renovations in 2011, the "cricket's answer to the Coliseum" could host over 100,000 spectators. Today, it is still the largest cricket ground in the country and the second largest in the world with 66,000 seats. Notice the posters outside the stadium depicting India's famous cricket players.

  • I came here to see the ipl cricket match. The stadium is very very big. It can hold thousands of people. The boundary line is also very far from the pitch which makes the batting difficult.  more »
  • Favourite place for cricket lovers. A nice place to watch cricket with phenomenal crowd. The flood lights and seating are arranged in such a manner that one can hardly find any difficulties while watching the match even from the last tier. Also the connectivity being good as it is situated on a prime location of the kolkata making it easily accessible.
  • This is the best cricket stadium in India . One of the historical cricket stadiums in the world. Seat capacity is large. All other systems are also good. Security system is fine. The view of the game from gallery is so beautiful.It is located at the centre of Kolkata , so transport system to reach here is awesome. This area has so many hotels , as the result foreigners get advantage to stay near the stadium
  • Mecca of Cricket in India. Its an honour for any player around the world to play and perform here. Many historical and important matches have been played here. Earlier football matches were also held here. Legendary Pele also played here in friendly football match long ago.
  • The best cricket stadium in India and also one of the best stadium in the world..... If anybody wants to see cricket match then try to book ticket at L or K block. This blocks are covered by shadow through out the day.... B block also can be booked for seeing Indian Cricketers from close as practice net for Indians usually set up just beside B block... But at noon sun light directly falls on entire B block.......
  • One of the best cricket grounds in the whole world. one needs to be present there in person to experience the passion that the spectators bring with them. There are only a few stadiums in the world which can even come close to the ambience of a packed eden gardens. sanitation facilities need to be improved though....
