International Travel Maps (Folded Map)
Kolkata (Calcutta) & North East India
Description by ITMB: 1st Edition, 2008, 1:10,000/1:2,300,000 scale - This is the first map published of Calcutta, the historic city at the mouth of the famous Hooghly River. I spent a week in Calcutta many moons ago and retain vivid memories of the city that is the essence of the passion that drives India. Now re-named Kolkata, this detailed city map shows the Howrah railway station, the exotic Burra Bazaar, Fort William, the Queen Victoria Gardens, the zoo, the Chowringhee and Esplanade hotel and entertainment sections, and the Sudder Street backpacker area of cheap hotels. The other side of the map shows the entire northeastern segment of the country from Varanasi (Benares) and Raipur in the west to the temple city of Bhubaneshwar in the south and the Nepalese/Chinese/Burmese borders in the north and east; truly a marvelous map of a part of the world that has not received much coverage up to now; printed double-sided on paper.
