Christmas in Kolkata is a magical time. While we do not have white Christmas here obviously (unless you travel up to the hills and are visiting Darjeeling), the Bhalobashar Shohor turns even more prettier. There are Christmas decorations hung up everywhere and fairy lights and Christmas trees adorn every corner. This is the time when every Bengali, irrespective of their religion, visits these churches to soak in the Yuletide spirit. So as you watch the beautiful love stories in the ZEE5 Original Series Bhalobashar Shohor – Pori, Arshinagar, Kolkatar Kobitara and Paramount – let’s take you around the City of Joy and all its historical churches on Christmas 2019!
The first name that comes to mind when you say churches in Kolkata is St Paul’s Church. This towering white structure near Exide crossing is something you won’t be able to miss. The Gothic architecture will make your eyes pop. The midnight mass of this church is quite famous too.
