Fort William, Kolkata is an important high secured area. None of the outsiders with due permission and specific reason are allowed here to enter. It's a neat and clean area and everything here is with proper discipline. Salute to the soldiers, Armed Forces, Military Police and all Senior Officers here as they are the ideal hero of our country to keep us safe always. Their sacrifice for the nation demands appreciation far and away.
It's the headquarters of Eastern command, fort William is a fully equipped and developed in such a way that it contains each and every thing required by army families like vegetables shops, saloons, bakery shop, grocery store, along with cricket stadium and huge golf ground for army officers

It's Indian Army headquater (eastern region). Most of the photos uploaded do not belongs to this place. You have to get permission to make an entrance here(Restricted entry). It has an Army training school. It has a historical museum which reveals ancient history of India before independence, how british ruled over us etc.
Beautifully designed by Britishers. Old beautiful buildings of Britishers are still maintained by Indian army.
