This post I would be apprising the viewers on a unique initiative conceptualized by WBHDCO under the directives of the Honorable Chief Minister of West Bengal. A first of its kind in the city. The initiative was of replicating a scaled-down version Seven Wonders of the World in Kolkata to offer a unique experience to the citizens as well as visitors.
The entire setup of Seven Wonders of the World housed in Eco-park Kolkata is a major attraction and endeavours to spread joy and awe among the people of Bengal who have a great love for travelling around the globe.
My stay at Kolkata is giving me the opportunity to see the various sights both within the city as well as in the region of West Bengal outside Kolkata. I love to travel and document my travels so as to provide an insight into future travellers among the readers here. Have a look at my photo story in concise form here.

It was the evening of a waning winter when I decided to pay a visit to the replica of Seven Wonders of the World at Eco Park. With a camera in hand wandered through the entire premises. It takes around 1.5 hours to cover the whole property, which sees an appreciable number of visitors. The colosseum was definitely the most eye-catching for me.

My thoughts on Seven Wonders of the World in Kolkata
Eco-park is an excellent example of the preservation of nature and the environment. I would definitely recommend a visit to Eco Park for all those who come visiting Kolkata or stay out here. For young children, a visit to the Seven Wonders of the World at Eco Park is indeed an excursion which must be planned to get a first-hand understanding of these unique sculptures spread across the globe.
