Eden Gardens, Kolkata (Calcutta)

Arena / Stadium · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Really the best stadium to watch cricket. I watched India vs Australia here and the experience was just wondering. The crowd was awesome. There are many entrance for the stadium and crown management is good. It was my first experience of watching a live cricket match. It was worth it. Most importantly we won the match too. A must visit place for cricket lovers.
  • For cricket lovers just plan for it.Redesign and construction of the Eden Gardens, an iconic and historical stadium. VMS assisted the client with a fast paced construction program to beat the World Cup hosting deadline. The spectacular curved roof unifies the facility developed in bits & pieces over decades. The stadium rebuild consisted of dismantling half of the existing stadium to be reconstructed with new facilities. The new Eden Garden is compliant for first class international cricket under the ICC rules

  • the largest stadium in India and one of the largest stadiums in the world.. previously had about 100,000 capacity but now it is reduced to 70,000(approximate). the ambience and crowd of kolkata is one of the most energetic as always.. love to be here whenever I get the chance.
  • One of the best cricket ground in the world . I have been here almost 15 to 20 times and love the place and specially the crowd out here .They enjoy the game like anything . Club house is the place where mostly celebrity sits and the place is convenient for people travelling via car,bus or metro. One can find Esplanade Metro around 2 km . There are lot many entry gates so always keep in mind in which block you need to sit accordingly choose the route etc
