House Of Lord Clive

Clive House

Raisa posted on 11 August

This is supposed to be among the oldest existing buildings in Kolkata. The House is named afer Robert Clive who spent many years in the 1700s here. There are several legends surrounding Clive House – that it was built in a single night, and that both the house and the gardens are haunted.

It was in fairly good shape until the 1900s when parts of it started breaking off. In 2001, excavations found remnants of a 2,000-year-old civilisation on the site. Today the House is surrounded by apartment buildings and modern architecture. It is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India but is still largely ignored {chunks of the building still crumble to the ground!}
