5 places in New Town you should visit

New Town is the new heart-throb of Kolkata. From sophisticated offices to high-end residential, from cultural hub to shopping destinations, and from road-side food stalls to fine dining restaurants, New Town can offer you a platter full of everything. New Town is a place for everyone; from kids to youth to the ones who are young at heart, New Town will not disappoint anyone. The place has flourished so much that a day trip can easily be made in and around New Town. No wonder it’s the most hip and happening satellite town of Kolkata.

 

Eco Park

A huge and sprawling acres of land that has a large pond, numerous facilities providing food, children’s play area, manicured gardens, floating musical fountain, butterfly, bamboo garden, and many more things. There is also an island called Sabujsathi in the middle of the huge lake that is accessible only by boat. There is a magnificent glasshouse on this island. Eco Park has so much to offer that a whole day can be dedicated to this only. This place has become an ideal ‘go-to’ place for people of all ages. There are lots of activities happening in the park that you can take part in. Or you can just come with your gang and chill. There are lovely sitting places near the lake. And loads of greenery all around. In fact, you can spend a full day here only.

Mother’s Wax Museum

Inspired by Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, Kolkata got its first wax museum in New Town. This is the ideal place for selfie queens and kings. It has life-size models of famous personalities from home and away. If you want to rub your shoulders with your favourite celebrities, walk into this place of glitz and glamour and just go clicking away. Trust me, they won’t mind a bit! Some intricately sculpted wax figures include that of Mahatma Gandhi, Anjelina Jolie, Salman Khan, Kishore Kumar, Subhash Chandra Bose, Tagore, Maradona, etc. You also find famous movie characters like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter.

Biswa Bangla Gate

Like Howrah Bridge is synonymous with Kolkata, Biswa Bangla Gate is slowly but steadily climbing that stature. This has become an iconic landmark of New Town as well as Kolkata. It is truly an architectural splendour. Even the distant view of it, brings excitement to everyone. It is nearly 55 meters in height. The icing on the cake is surely the fine-dining restaurant that this place offers. Savouring a delicacy on that height and getting a pristine 360degrees vistas is simply marvelous. Take your taste buds in an adventure in this restaurant offering a varied cuisine. The evening view of the lit-up Biswa Bangla Gate is just stunning.

New Coffee House/New Town Coffee House

Right now this is the talk of the town. The ‘adda’ loving Bengalis were gifted with another coffee house in New Town. The actual, iconic, and heritage coffee house in college street has been a favourite place for Bengalis and other alike. So many exemplary works were born in the college street coffee house. So many path-breaking songs, lyrics, movies, topic of novels, etc. were conceived there. The charm of that coffee house and its legacy will live forever. Comparing the college street coffee house to the new town coffee house is foolish. So let’s discuss and review the new town coffee house. Its spacious got two floors and is very elegantly designed. Besides coffee, tea and snacks, there are other food items also. You can spend hours in the coffee house chatting, writing poems, having heated but seated political discussions, and doing all such things that will make the New Town Coffee House a legendary place 50 years down the line because as we all know, ‘a lot can happen over a coffee’.

Rabindra-Tirtha

This project was established by HIDCO. As the name suggests, it is made in the loving memory of Tagore or Thakur as we fondly call him. The students can conduct research on Tagore, it has an auditorium, archives, research center; it also exhibits Rabindranath Tagore’s paintings. RabindraTirtha has an area of 4.89 acres and it also has a music room and mini cinema hall. It was built to commemorate the 150th birthday of Tagore. It can be called a pilgrimage center for all Tagore lovers.

Therefore New Town has many new and unique things to offer. This well-planned satellite area in the northern periphery is a must-visit place in Kolkata, West Bengal.
