Prinsep Ghat - Review

For those who wish to experience Kolkata in its sacred essence must definitely come here at least once during their visit. Though there are a number of ghats in the city, this one particularly remains people’s favourite owing to the spectacular views of its surrounding. Coming here, you can see the architecture, that despite being worn out has plenty of charm. Just beside the place lies a beautiful park where you can get a nice motor free boat ride around the blues of the Hooghly enjoying the views of Howrah Bridge from there. It is said that the evening sunset in the place is one of the best things to see and experience in Kolkata.

Prinsep Ghat, Kolkata Reviews

  • Awesome place. Serene atmosphere at evening. Mild breeze from the Ganges will cherish a romantic atmosphere. Food stalls are available there. Fast foods, snacks, cold drinks available there, though a bit overpriced. You can have a ride on the boats for a certain fare. Just go and check'll have fun for sure 😊

  • One word - Best! This is highly serene, the views, ambience, aroma of this place is incredible. Mainly for couples as it's the most romantic place in Kolkata, but anybody can go and visit. A boat ride is also offered, but the charges are very high. If the weather is nice, one must opt for boat ride. Best time to visit - after 4 PM.

  • Very lovely and well decorated clean place to spend some time for relaxation. Kids can play. Very good for morning and evening work. There are many food stalls. You can enjoy beautiful river view and also enjoy boat riding and circular rail.

  • A very beautiful place in the city. One can come here with is family, friends or even with their loved ones. There is something here for everyone. You can just sit and relax along the river bank or also can take a boat ride on the River Ganges.

  • Personally this is my one of the favorite place of Kolkata... This place is in the bank of the Ganges..a view of the Ganges can be enjoyed from this place... with that you can eat various of street foods... this is a good place for photography.. kids can play outdoor games. You can enjoy boat ride on the Ganges.. on Sunday some young singers sit here and play guitar and sing songs... That is very charming... Enjoy...
