Travel Voice Of Bengal::Travel::DistrictTouristPlace
Voice Of Bengal::Travel::DistrictTouristPlace The Zoo in Kolkata is unique in many ways. It is a historic Zoo and when history blends with nature, it makes for a heady concoction. In 19th century Bengal, Kolkata was at par with cities of the stature of London and Paris. It was after all the capital of the mighty British East India Company. Thus, the enlightened British citizens of Kolkata would very often draw comparisons with the "Jardin de Plantes" of France and the famous "Zoological Society of London". As years passed by, the cr?me de la cr?me of Kolkata comprising of Burra Sahibs and the quintessential Bengali Babus, pitched vociferously for a Zoological Garden that could match with their counterparts elsewhere in Europe. Thus, was born the Alipur Zoological Garden in undulating 45 acres of land allotted by the erstwhile EastIndia Company.
