This is an attempt to discover the old areas of Calcutta, where heritage houses and history fill every crowded lane and secret courtyard. Languishing in another time and place, at the end of narrow lanes and behind untidy shop-fronts, Calcutta’s rich heritage waits to be discovered. The ‘Great Houses’ of Calcutta are an important but forgotten part of Calcutta’s architectural history. While much has been written and photographed on the British colonial architecture and lifestyle, very little has been done on the indigenous equivalent.

    Indeed Yes, You are right. I always find Calcutta is a very unique city. Compared to other Indian cities Calcutta is not so "OLD" as we know about other metros or cities (It haven't crossed 400 years even),still this city named as "City of Palaces" by British Governments because of this marvellous houses. Now unfortunately maximum of these houses are ruined, crushed & forgotten because of different external & internal reasons...
