If the Dalhousie Square was comparable to the Piccadilly Square in the 18th century, the Esplanade and Chowringhee Road was nothing short of Oxford Street.
During the time of the construction of the new Fort William where it stands till date, the land beyond it which is today's Esplanade was a tiger infested jungle and Chowringhee was just a hamlet of isolated hovels, surrounded by waterlogged paddy-fields and bamboo groves separated at the end of this jungle.
In this virtual walk find out how the jungle developed into one of the most fashionable areas in colonial Calcutta. Hear stories about the building dotting this area which earned the city the moniker of "City of Palaces". Come join us for a travel down time !!!!!!!
The walk will be conducted via Zoom. In case of any queries you can reach us at email@example.com.
