Beautiful minimalistic (Greek-reminiscent to me) monument beside the Ganga. With the (second) bridge as the backdrop. Wonderful to have a historian-scholar-Indologist honoured. Very pleasant, green peaceful environment.

Wonderful location, ideal view, and appropriate for all the ages of people, mostly couple. Barring occational disturbance by beggers, everything is fine.

Nice spot, but state of maintenance could be better. Visited late afternoon on a working day. Good information at site on the import of the monument.

Beautiful atmosphere, with the slow breeze flowing in the evening and ganges flowing beside, it is the prefect place to sit, relax and enjoy the view.

The structure itself was not much to look at - even odd as to how it was used. The grounds in front are very worn out. Though you do get a great view of the new suspension bridge. The real gem is the park behind it where you hop a non motorized boat ride on the Ganges. Truly authentic! Be... More

Went with friends. First time on Ganga. The view of Howrah from the boat is very nice. You can enjoy the peace and calmness of ganga and observe tides of Hoogli.

We reached Prinsep Ghat via the local train, watching the locals taking their evening walks along the riverbank on the way. It was magical to see the sin setting over the Howrah Bridge in the cool of the early evening.

Visiting Kolkata is completed by Visit to Victoria Memorial specially by a walk. Princep Ghat in the evening and sitting on the stairs on the Ganga is an experience which is soothing to the soul.
