Lots of vendors although ‘ much of the same ‘ in most stores. There are two more high end shops offering over priced ( for India) clothing and potential souvenir or gift items. Worth a visit if you can deal with Kolkata taxi drivers!

A shopping hub which takes you back in time when shops were shops and not boutiques and Showrooms . Look around maybe you may find a gem of an artifact or maybe some classic ethnic garment .

This used to be a happing place but has lost its old charm. Bishwa Bangla is a good addition( but overpriced). Most of the emporiums are quite good. The whole area needs a good clean, new paint
