This station is situated in the middle of the city. So, most of the sites are easily accessible from here. You can start with the nearest place which is rather a rarely visited place. This is a church near Sealdah Main.
Around Dharmatlalla, there many places to visit. You can take a glimpse at the Shaheed Minar and at the Mecca of Cricket Eden Gardens. Besides, visit St. Paul's Cathedral and the famous National Museum and Victoria Memorial (don't return from its front garden; visit the inside too).
Take a stroll along Red
...
more...
Road and Strand Road which is between Ganga and Fort William (eastern HQ of army, not a fort these days and unaccessible for civilians). Walk up to Princep Ghat. Take a boat ride. At the opposite side of the river, in Howrah, Belur Moth is quite a place to visit.
Near Belgachhia, the sparkling Jain temple of Parshanath (locally known as Pareshnath) should be visited. Visit Science City at Saltlake. Visit Botanical garden (biggest of its kind) at Shibpur (Howrah), Birla Temple and Kalighat Temple in south Kolkata, Dakshineshwar Temple at north of Kolkata etc.
There are more places in Kolkata which lesser known like Horticulture garden, Marble Palace on Muktarambabu Street, Zoo at Alipore (not so good in present time, though not the worst), Nikko Park (joy ride) in Salt Lake etc.
And for the RFs, must visit the railway museum beside the HWH station.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
