The state offers some of the most breathtaking landscape features as well as scenic natural beauty. Some of India’s most popular travel destinations like the hill station of Darjeeling, the Sandakfu Peak and the Sundarban mangrove forests lie in West Bengal. Kolkata was the capital of British India and, traces of the Colonial era are still evident in the various buildings of the city which have been constructed according to the Neo-Classical, Baroque, Oriental, Neo-Gothic and Islamic schools of architecture. West Bengal Tourism has significantly benefitted from choosing Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan as its brand ambassador. West Bengal is noted both for its natural and architectural heritage.
