About this activity
Kolkata was divided into White Town and Black Town. The White Town was centered around Dalhousie Square is the oldest square in the City.

The most iconic buildings of Kolkata are located in this area. We would be starting our walk from the Great Eastern Hotel. We will be covering the following monuments during our short journey.
• Raj Bhavan, or Government House, initiated by Lord Wellesley who famously said “India should be governed from a Palace, not a counting house”. This is now the residence of the Governor of Bengal
• St John’s Church, which houses the grave of Job Charnock (founder of British Calcutta), and the Black Hole Memorial (a controversial episode in Calcutta’s history)
• Lal Dighi, the water tank that provided drinking water, but was also a popular promenade
• The General Post Office, with its grand dome and Corinthian pillars
• Writer’s Building, which originally served as the offices of the clerks of the East India Company, but now houses the Secretariat of West Bengal
• St. Andrew’s Kirk, a beautiful Scottish Kirk
