Kolkata - Post Report Question and Answers

What English-language religious services are available locally?

Some churches – Mostly Catholic - have an English service, but it's mostly Bengali. Mosques - Arabic and Bengali, Hindu Temples - Bengali and Hindi. I am pleasantly surprised at the amount of tolerance for other religions here. Most people are either Christian, Hindu, or Muslim. You can find within one block all three religious centers. It very nice. - Aug 2021
