  • Good place for first time visit.. greenery..most preferable in the morning time and in rainy season...you can come here. With your family or friends but you've to visit this place once because besides all this you'll feel relaxed.
  • A nice place to spend time, be with friends and gossip. This is both the heart and lungs of Kolkata. It gives more than enough space for sport enthusiasts to play, as well as it's greenery pleases our eyes and lungs. It is indeed a pleasure always to sit here and spend time... Thank you Maidan, for being a part of out lives.
  • Have seen better places in India as compared to this. There are better forts or palaces to go then to waste your time here. However garden is good and well maintained.
  • Situated in the heart of Kolkata, Maidan provides lush greenery to the city. One will find it busy with people playing football and cricket. Recommended to visit during monsoon period.
  • Such a huge green place in middle of a busy city with heritage and only tram line in India and ya pretty good museums and more. Zoo is near by too. Need a whole day to get to see all stufs here.
