The Dalhousie Square area was once Dihi Kalikata one of the three villages which later grew into the metropolis of Kolkata. It was here that the British first built a mud Fort around 1700 and started their trading ware houses. Later, when the East India Company took over the administration of the region after 1757, their courts of justice and seat of governance and the churches for Sunday service were set up around the area. In the heydays of the British administration, it was called Dalhousie Square, after Lord Dalhousie who was the Governor General in the 1850s.
