Picturesque view of the Vidyasagar Setu Aug 30, 2012
Imagine the silhouette of a lonely ivory porch set in a garden with Gothic columns, one of the longest cable stayed bridges of Asia in the back drop. Or the sight of blue, red and white country boats floating like swans on the golden waters of the Hooghly river like they have done for centuries. Prinsep Ghat offers you such serene photogenic frames every evening. Sit on the stairs leading to the waters and see time floating away under the bridges, in to the sunset.

Restored by the state's public works department in November 2001, a park added in 2012, Prinsep Ghat is an ivory white monument made on the banks of the Hooghly river in memory of James Prinsep. The monument was the gateway to Calcutta in its initial years used by the Imperial British entourages. It's been a popular recreational spot since the beginning of 20th century and a haunt of photographers and love-birds alike.
