Prinsep Ghat, Kolkata Reviews

  • Being a historical landmark this place has a different significance. You can feel the mystic breeze coming over from decades. From it's very first inauguration the place is highly praised for its calmness as well as scenery. Now a days in these clumsy city evenings you can find a secluded space from all those artificial lifestyle...come here and breathe the ancient...

  • Perfect Place For Fun Loving People, Couples and Family. Absolutely Composed place for people who need break from work. The place is situated near the banks of holy river Ganges where boat ride is a complete fun activity and romantic pleasure for couples

  • That was a nice and comfortable place. Here you'll get a fully natural breeze and view of the river Ganges, the park is very long so you can have a morning or evening walk, also a cozy place to spend some time in the evening time and enjoy the sunset. The opportunity of is also available although the price is a little higher, but this place is one of the best and most comfortable places in Kolkata.

  • Lovely cool place for couples especially although many more aged people go there for walk or little hangout. But from my view i suggest not to allow little children there because many couples do bad things which should not be openly exposed to children before being adult. Other than that if i take the positive side the ganges and the pillars made there gives a great view for photographers. The photo taken by me proves the rest.

  • River Ganges is floating around with all its calmness. James Prinsep Ghat is not only historic but also a romantic place. Its Gothic architecture and serene surrounding with lush green trees keeps one away from hustle-bustle of city life.
