about esplanade

Eden Gardens, along with the Strand and Esplanade area, formed the main recreational area for the English during the Raj. Plunge into the sea of humanity at Esplanade. Rows of once-splendid buildings pass before your eyes. Such a building is Hogg Market, more popularly known as New Market. This was built in 1874 by Stuart Hogg and, as the urban proverb goes, even tiger’s milk can be found in New Market. Though much of it was burnt down in 1985, the main structure still remains. Shopping and eating here is a must during any Kolkata trip.
