It was my off day. I could have spent my entire day binge watching Sherlock or obsessing over Blair Waldorf, but somehow I found myself thinking of going out and ended up in the Indian Museum, Kolkata with my cousin. Kolkata is beautiful when you have eyes that are keen to notice beauty in everything. And, when it comes to Indian Museum, the allure and beauty of the architecture will make every single soul fall for it.
Indian Museum is one of the must visit historical museums in Kolkata. I visited this place for the first time with my uncle when I was a little girl. Since that time I’ve visited this museum many times. This place never ceases to amaze me. I got to witness selected sculptors from different eras. I was so fascinated with those sculptors. It made me feel like, I’ve left behind the hustle of bustle of the 21st century and arrived at a different era where everything is veiled by a mysterious curtain.
If you ever Google, ‘ Indian Museum Kolkata haunted’ you’ll find lots of stories that had been built around this 200-year old building over the years. I think the ghosts residing here are admirers of beauty as well.
My favorite has always been this idol of deity Durga, which was made in the 12th century C.E. The detailing of the idol will make you awestruck.
Breathtakingly gorgeous, isn’t it?
The lovely golden sun of spring made the day a perfect day for going out. Let me tell you, the spring in Kolkata is pretty hot. But, the azure sky, the chirping birds had already elevated my mood. In the museum, I came across a group of school students. It was lovely to see their expressions full of astonishment, eyes sparkling with excitement.
We spent hours in the Indian Museum. And, like always the visit was followed by a little shopping in Park Street. If you’ve bargaining skills, this place will be your personal heaven.
It was a day well spent exploring the Indian Museum. Yet, there are a lot of things to learn and explore. I will wait for my next visit to this place.
A Tips On Dressing
When you’re out strolling in the Indian Museum, you’ve to dress up comfortably. Because you need to walk a lot to explore the precious gems the museum has. You might also like to visit the esplanade and the park street area on the same day. I wore this white top with pink and yellow flower printed on it, I think this top is really pretty and perfect to wear on a spring day. I paired the top with a gray striped trouser for a semi-formal appearance. But, the shoes must be comfortable, as you’ve to do a lot of walking. So, I picked the black and white stripped casual shoe.
Take a Metro from any Metro Station to Park Street then take the gate NO 1. The Museum is just a few steps away.
