Overview

The British had sought to build the second city of the Empire right here and it is this ‘building’ that we'll show you in the course of our walk through the ‘European’ areas of what was once the capital of the British Empire in India. There are major plans on to beautify and restore this heritage site with its rich and varied architectural styles. Join us on a walk through what the British proudly referred to as the 'White Town'
