Why Kolkata Is the City of Joy in 25 Instagram Photos

Picture of Sridevi Nambiar
Updated: 19 June 2017
Kolkata is a city that celebrates life like few others do: from historic mithai (sweet) stores selling freshly made traditional sweets to the crowded and colourful by-lanes of the Mallick Ghat flower market; the other-worldly beauty of the Kumartuli potter’s colony to the chaos of its historic metro system. We have selected 25 Instagram photographs that capture the city’s rich and harmonious multiculturalism, its unique ways of mixing tradition and modernity and its constantly festive spirit. This is why Kolkata is known as the City of Joy.
