Kolkata Car Rentals & City Information

Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) is a city that means many things to many people. For some, it is the city of joy, while for others it is dirty, crowded, and noisy. It is one of the four major Metropolitan city of India. Kolkata is not an ancient city like Delhi. Like Mumbai and Chennai, it originated largely due to the expansionist ambitions of the European powers, especially the British Raj. Little wonder, Kolkata has some of the finest Raj edifices built in a variety of styles. Kolkata was the first capital of the British in India. The city was established in 1686 when the British moved to the small villages of Sutanati, Govindpur, and Kalikata from their trading port of Hooghly Lord Clive retook Kolkata after it was invaded and took away by Siraj-Ud-Daula (Nawab of Bengal) in 1756 and until 1911, it remained the capital of the British government in India.
