Usually, we will see it written as Kolkata or কলকাতা. You can find it on the banks of the eastern side of the Hooghly River, with an important commercial and cultural role in the whole of eastern and north-eastern India. The state where this city is located has iconic colonial sites such as the government buildings at B. B. D. Bagh and the Victoria Memorial.I want to know more about Kolkata
