Virtual Walk: Chowringhee Architecture Trail (English)

Jan 03 | 07:00 PM (IST)
Online Event

Event Information

In a bid to establish Calcutta as the second capital of the British empire, the colonial rulers incorporated aspects of Greco-Roman architecture into the local landscape. The erstwhile “white town” stands as testament to these efforts to adapt this alien building style for the unforgiving conditions of Calcutta’s climate. On this walk we explore the area which grew from a village on the outskirts into an entertainment and recreational hub of the city, giving Calcutta its moniker the “City of Palaces” - Chowringhee.

The walk traces the history of the area and beyond through its planning, architecture, establishments, and people.

The walk will be conducted via Zoom. Participation link will be shared with all those who have registered 12 hours before the tour via email. Please check your Spam folder in case you have not received the link or get in touch with us at contact@immersivetrails.com for any queries.

Timing: 19:00-21:00 (IST) | 13:30-15:30 (UK) | 8:30-10:30 (US-Eastern)
