about princep ghat

If you are looking for some moments of peace and quiet in the bustling city of Kolkata, think no more and head to Princep Ghat. Built in the year 1841 and named after James Prinsep, the monument is a must visit. Built in Greek and gothic style, the ghat sees a lot of locals and tourists during the evening. If hunger pangs hit you when you are here, you can go for a steaming pack of popcorn or indulge in some spicy jhaal muri. Dominated by pleasant conversations and happy chatter, a peaceful stroll along the ghats will certainly complete your evening here. It is one of the oldest recreational ghat in India. There is a stall of fast food and ice-cream on the ghat that has been serving for 40 years now. One can go for boating in the evening.
