Photographer's Note

Taken at the Eden garden, Kolkata...

This stretch of greenery that comprises the gardens was named after Emily and Fanny Eden, sisters of the erstwhile Governor General,
Lord Auckland.
The most interesting feature of the garden is a
pagoda like Burmese pavilion.
The history of the pagoda goes like this :

Lord Dalhousie, the then Governor General of India,while visiting the Pye (in the southern Myanmar) city in 1853, became almost spell-bound on seeing the seer architectural beauty of a pagoda. He immediately decided to
transplant it at Calcutta (Kolkata)
by transporting the whole structure part by part.
He did what he wished.
It was at first re-erected somewhere
near Auckland Circus garden in
Calcutta(Kolkata).
And then it was finally shifted to the present site in 1856.
