  • I went there with one speculation that we have in Bangla (Poket gorer math) and literally it was right, it is a huge empty field. only a few street children was playing. 
  • a nice place to visit any any time during the day. have a walk or a horse card ride or tram. romantic place, you can sit and read the book or walk or chit chat.... 
  • Known for horse cart ride around the Maidan, this is kind of must visit for first timers to Kolkata. A bubbling evening venue for youngster and all alike. The Maidan itself is free for all play ground...  more »

  • Just at the centre of the golf course this is a big park placed in acres. Sitting their suddenly you feel you have cut off from all the cities noise and never ending running. All you feel is a calm atmosphere with nature's natural silence. Many teenage and locals visit here. Spending time and hanging out with friends here is very refreshing.
  • One of the more beautiful and serene places in Calcutta, is a treasure to this city and is thoroughly enjoyable for morning activities running cycling.. You name it. Also a great place to unwind in nature after a hectic week
  • Victoria memorial,Indian museum,birla planetorium,mohor kunjo(park) available in maidan.A big place for 1day enjoyment.
  • Went to baaji bazar which is very near to the Sahid minar maidan in Esplanade. Opposite the bus terminus.
  • If you're thinking where does the magic happen in the city this is the place. The place is calm and surreal in its own weird sense. Maidan is huge if not ginormous field with acres of land and giant trees in its belly. The thing which attracts me here is the life happening around you while you sit with a warm cup of chai. There are soccer playing adolescents, lyrical teenagers humming with their guitars, couples pacing down the endless patches of lush green grass, families with a picnic basket and more. While the city of joy hustles and bustles through the day, a life breathes here un-flinched.
