Kolkata- My City of Joy which stirs up my emotions and where I am always amazed by the hurtling riots of vibrant colors !🥰🥰 . . Victoria Memorial is an iconic structure of Kolkata and a cynosure of all eyes ! 💒💒 . . Some Interesting facts – 1. The Victoria Memorial is the most opulent structure of the British Raj in India. The huge white memorial is made from Makrana marble brought in from Jodhpur, Rajasthan. It is the same type of marble from which the Taj Mahal was built. 2. The memorial was built between 1906 and 1921 in the memory of Queen Victoria’s 25 years reign in India. 3. The British government surprisingly did not spend a penny on this memorial. A whooping One crore Five Lacs rupees was donated by the people of India and the royalties to build this colossal structure. 4. Sir William Emerson, the President of British Institute of Architects, designed the building. The construction of the building was done by Martin & Co. of Kolkata. It took almost 15 years to construct this building and was opened for the public in 1921 . . . . #cityofjoy #kolkatadiaries #victoriamemorial #victoriamemorialkolkata #britishraj #thisiskolkata #calcuttacacophony #iconicstructure #joyousnomadic #calcuttadiaries #kolkatagram #ig_calcutta

#Repost @y_so_roy_y • • • • • • Victoria Park Did you know The Famous Victoria Memorial was painted Black ? Why ? I was shocked too . I came across this fact on a journal few days back , where the it stated that during the WW II , in 1943 Japanese were bombing Calcutta the Kidderpore Docks, Manicktala Market ( the bomb was a dud😏) Near the Dunlop tyre Factory . The Victoria which was easily visible even on a full moon night was dipped in a paint of black - Solution ! It was black for a short period of time. But its true , photographic proofs states such ! ( Though Photography was also banned then . . .thats another story ) Now its White and a marvel ❤️. A Click of Silhouette can give u a feel of what it would have looked like. Fascinating isnt it 😍.

Victoria Memorial is the most elegant and famous monuments in the heart of Kolkata. This vast white structure is made of Makrana Marble brought in from Jodhpur, Rajasthan. It is the same type of marble from which the #tajmahal was built. The Memorial is situated on 64 acres of land. Another beauty of the #victoriamemorial is its sprawling gardens and lush green lawns. History -In 1876 the British parliament made Victoria the Empress of India. The monument was announced by Lord Curzon, viceroy of India, shortly after Victoria’s death. The project took 20 years to complete because of problems with funding. He appealed to the people of India and the royalties to donate funds generously. A whooping One crore Five Lacs rupees(Rs.1,05,00,000) which were the cost to build the monument was donated by the people of India and the royalties. The statue of the Queen was sculpted in England. Before the Victoria Memorial was erected, the location housed Presidency Jail, which was later demolished from there and relocated to Alipore, to construct the memorial. The Prince of Wales, King George V, laid the foundation stone on January 4, 1906, and it was formally opened to the public in 1921.
