No meals included.
Day 2, Kolkata
Today we enjoy a sightseeing tour of this metropolis, including the Victoria Memorial, Indian Museum, Jain Temple and the Howrah bridge.
Formerly known as Calcutta, India's second-largest city (population 14,000,000) is a fascinating east coast metropolis. Visit the Marble Palace Mansion to see the paintings and statues, the Jain Temple, Dakshineswar Hindu Temple (12 Shiva shrines), Belur Math (a temple complex and the headquarters of a Monastic Order that is Hindu in origin), the Victoria Memorial, Dalhousie Square (interesting architecture) and the Nakhoda Mosque. For a spectacular view of the city, climb the Octherlony Monument (218 steps up).
Kolkata is also the home of Mother Teresa's Ashram Home of Children - a visit here can be an emotional and enlightening experience. For a spot of shopping head to the Maidan (market), and as in many large Indian cities Kolkata has a fascinating train station, worth a leisurely visit even if you're not taking a train.
1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.
Day 3, Kolkata
Arrangements end after breakfast today and a transfer to Kolkata Airport to meet your onward fight.
