Sunset Cruise on the River Ganges, Kolkata (Calcutta)
India, West Bengal

Info : Sunset Cruise on the River Ganges

Take an evening sunset river cruise on the Ganges for glorious views of Kolkata by night. You will visit Dakshineswar Hindu temple, which was built in the mid-19th century to honour the goddess Kali and fuses Islamic, Christian and Hindu motifs as a symbol of unity. The gardens of the temple complex are perfectly manicured and have beautiful views over the Hooghly River.  Belur Math, on the opposite bank, is the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission –  a volunteer organisation that provides healthcare, disaster relief, rural management, tribal welfare, education and cultural preservation projects in northern India.

 It’s an atmospheric boat ride and one which really puts the city in the context as an historic port city. 


Customer Feedback
Eastern India is a great holiday - Calcutta vibrant, the Sunderbans peaceful, the mountains majestic and the monasteries interesting. I won't mention the roads!
