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.

  • 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.
  • One of the best cricket stadiums in the world. The Mecca of cricket. Was one of the largest cricket stadiums of the world at one point of time. Even after the reduced capacity, this remains one of the top cricket stadiums in the world.
  • One of the most iconic Cricket Stadium in India. Always love the ambience and enthusiasm from the crowd. Its a momentous experience to watch a Live match on this ground.
  • Eden gardens is the best cricket ground in India. Once you have been here you will forget every other ground in the country. But every place has some pros and cons. So the negative part about this ground is toilets are completely unhygienic and the crowd also tends to get unethical and ill-mannered when they start smoking either inside the toilet or somewhere they can manage to puff. You might get good foods like pizza, samosas, roll, chips etc but the price charged is higher compared to what you get in a normal place. Overall if you are going for a good cricketing experience then this stadium is really awesome and you will love every bit of it.
  • The stadium with life. If you love cricket this ground is for you. You can feel the madness here. Great place for any cricket series and league. You can Spot Mr. SRK in this picture.
