Durga Puja

While Kolkata hosts hundreds of pujas, most major ones can be grouped together. Whether you’re on foot or wheels, this strategy can be quite helpful because it will save you time, money, and energy while also giving you a better overall experience.

The best time to visit the pandals is early in the morning, before sunrise. If you can prepare and hit the streets between 3:30 AM to 4 AM, you’ll have the best ambiance, weather, photography opportunities, and minimal crowds. Plus, there are no parking restrictions, no walking restrictions, no long queues, and less hassle. You’ll appreciate it if you pair it with the pleasant weather.

So, if you can overcome the temptation to sleep in and shake off the tiredness from the previous evening’s festivities, definitely wake up early at least once.

Also, the best vehicle for pandal hopping is a bike, as it allows you to get closer to the pandals in the early morning. With a bike, parking is not an issue, and walking is also less of a hassle.
