Eden Gardens Travel

Long association with the British enables Kolkata to boast of numerous locations remembered due to their association with certain individuals, like the Eden Gardens. The garden, as the name suggests, is where two sisters (one of them named Eden) related to the Governor of Auckland, spend hours during their leisurely strolls. The cricket stadium built next to the garden is also aptly named after the garden.

Considered to be the largest cricket stadium in the world the Eden Gardens boast of a capacity of 1,20,000. Witnessing a cricket match at Eden Gardens jam packed with spectators is any cricket lover’s dream come true. The mammoth score board and the flood lights just add to the cricket zing. One may get a glimpse of the stadium upon request to the chowkidar, otherwise entry is restricted to the stadium. The adjoining garden can visited from 0900-2000hr daily. Also try and visit the Mohun Bagan football club nearby.
