This area has so many hotels , as the result foreigners get advantage to stay near the stadium
Mecca of Cricket in India. Its an honour for any player around the world to play and perform here. Many historical and important matches have been played here. Earlier football matches were also held here. Legendary Pele also played here in friendly football match long ago.
The best cricket stadium in India and also one of the best stadium in the world..... If anybody wants to see cricket match then try to book ticket at L or K block. This blocks are covered by shadow through out the day.... B block also can be booked for seeing Indian Cricketers from close as practice net for Indians usually set up just beside B block... But at noon sun light directly falls on entire B block.......
One of the best cricket grounds in the whole world. one needs to be present there in person to experience the passion that the spectators bring with them. There are only a few stadiums in the world which can even come close to the ambience of a packed eden gardens. sanitation facilities need to be improved though....
