Listening to @bloodywood ~🇮🇳🤘🏻 And thinking back to the days in turbulent India. For a tiny pig like me it was an incredible experience 😱 So sometimes I needed a break. And at such wonderful places.. 😍 This and the warm (ok it was really bacon hot 🥓😁) Indian sun makes a perfect place for shutting down for a few minutes. Just sitting the in the sun and listening to the sound of the big city 😴🐷☀️ The Victoria Memorial in Kolkata. It's dedicated to the memory of Queen Victoria (1819–1901) and is now a museum. 🏛️ Victoria Memorial - Kolkata West Bengal - India 🌏 #kolkata  #victoriamemorialkolkata #india  #plushiegram  #giraffesuit #plushies  #travelling  #pigletontour #piglet 🐷 #plushiesofinstagram   #traveling  #india 🇮🇳 #westbengal #plushiecommunity  #piglet   #plushie  #travelgram  #calcutta #victoriamemorial #museum #pigletaroundtheworld  #sun #queenvictoria #marblebuilding #marble #victoria #building

The old guard still wears a pale shade of white, ain't it? That's #VictoriaMemorial , the grand marble building right at the heart of #Kolkata . Built sometime around early 1900 to celebrate #queen Victoria's reign over #India as part of the #British rule, today it's a #museum and a gateway for the desolate (or desperate) #lovers of the supposed #Cityofjoy . #Kolkata #Bengal #Architecture #India #Historic #AsianWonderlust #LonelyPlanet #NatGeoCreative #Wikitravel #SamsungS7
The last 10 days of this month, we will be sharing some frames from the city of Joy, our city - Kolkata. The city that runs through our being! . . A city of amiable contrasts, Kolkata has an alluring old-world charm and tranquil pace of life which can’t be experienced in other metros. . . Calcutta traces a glorious history of the British Raj with many monuments and memoirs from the British era. Victoria memorial being one of them. . . Victoria Memorial, one of the most elegant and grand monuments in the heart of Kolkata, is vast white structure made of marble. A cynosure of all eyes and a respite for the tired feet. It was built between 1906 and 1921 to commemorate Queen Victoria's 25-year reign in India. Once you are in Kolkata it is a sin not to visit the Victoria Memorial. . . Here's sharing a sun-kissed frame from our recent visit to Kolkata. . . #amarshohor #kolkata #ig_kolkata #kolkatacacophony #heritage #kolkatagram #kolkatadiaries #victoriamemorial #instagood #igers #instapic #instatravel #traveldiaries #indiantraveller #travelphotography #instatravel #photooftheday #lonelyplanet #trippyowl #globetrotter #liveauthentic #travel #neverstopexploring #passionpassport #stayandwander #bestvacations #beautifuldestinations #bloggerlife

A ‘marble’ of the British Raj. Lucky they haven’t resorted to changing its name to Rani ki Haveli or something like that... •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••. #QueenVictoria #VictoriaMemorial #Kolkata #Calcutta #Marble #Trafalgar #BengalsBuckingham
After a hefty lunch at @6ballygungeplace we headed straight for the #VictoriaMemorial . At ₹10 per head, I had the whole lawn of Victoria Memorial at my disposal. While my friend went ahead to explore the museum, I decided to be my lazy self and take a nap under the winter sun in the lawn. Well, I tried but couldn't sleep but lying out there, I definitely enjoyed watching people having a good time on their Sunday outing, kids playing, some even having a picnic and of course, there was no dearth of people trying to take selfies like me. And then I end up with such a gorgeous pic! Perks of being lazy, you see?
