The Shahid Minar is located at Esplanade in central Kolkata, towering 48 m (157 ft) high. It has a foundation based on the Egyptian style.Offering bird’s eye views of Kolkata, the two balconies at the top of this Minar are privy to some spectacular scenery.Unfortunately, a visitor needs police permission to get up top and the process is quite lengthy and tedious.Even so, a visit to this attraction is warranted just to see the unique architectural influences of the structure.
