Writer’s building is one of the most prominent buildings in Kolkata attracting thousands of visitors to it every year. The place used to be the house of State Government of West Bengal a few years back, but today it stands as a great example of city’s history and victorian era architecture. Most of the people come here to watch and admire its structure and design that is around 150 years old. Not only that, there is a certain history to this place too that you must definitely delve into. Located in the northern part of BBD Bagh, this beautiful building got its name from the fact that it was once accommodated by a bunch of Junior writers of East India Company who transformed this place with their Baroque statues and noirish interiors. A must visit for history lovers and curious souls.
