  • Beautiful palace made by British...Kolkata Town Hall in Roman Doric style, was built in 1813 by the architect and engineer Maj.-Gen. John Garstin with a fund of 700,000 Rupees raised from a lottery to provide the Europeans with a place for social gatherings.
  • A museum is there and it is one of the Place of Visit near Aakashvani. Many photographer shoots here. The pillar of the palace is so beautiful that even Shooting for Movie take place here. It is also adjacent to High Court.
  • Heritage buliding! Beautiful view! But the maintenance is not upto the mark!
  • This is a nice place for photo shoot. Even film shooting is also done here.
  • Kolkata Panorama, India‚Äôs first high-tech story-telling museum on the history of the city of Kolkata, built by Kolkata Museum Society (a Kolkata Municipal Corporation Project) is opened since 2002 in the historic Town Hall. Divided in 19 enclaves and covering an area of 1200 sq mt, the museum depicts the story of Kolkata, its social, political & socio-economic history, tumultuous freedom movement, its creative efforts in the domains of education, literature, music, performing art, science and technology. The story is told with the help of a state-of-the-art communication technology so as to involve the visitors with recreated events of the past. The Town Hall Library & Archives has been built up with a huge prestigious collection of rare books on Kolkata on the upper floor of the Town Hall and opened to the researchers in 2004. Now it is growing to assimilate relevant information about the city under one roof. Any researcher interested in the city of Kolkata can use this reading room with a readership card.
