The Rajarhat New Town is now the heartthrob of Kolkata. In this place, many tourists attractions are built like Aquatica, Eco park 7 wonders , and axis mall Snow Park etc. and now the latest attraction is Biswa Bangla Gate Kolkata NewTown. Now it’s opened for all, from the same day of the kolkata Book Fair inauguration 2019.
The opening date is 31 January 2019. The Hanging restaurant in Biswa Bangla Gate Kolkata New Town is like a gateway of Kolkata. The gate is Like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the London Eye in London. I hope it will be the biggest tourist attraction in future.
The design was published to the public in 2015. The construction of the gate started on 6th March 2017. The building is being constructed by 70 tons of steel. The total cost of construction of this gate is 25 cores. It is a new project of West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO).
This gate is about 55 meters high. A narrow tunnel made for visitors will be about 25 meters above the ground. There are 2 dedicated elevators which carry the visitors into the tunnel.

A clear view of Newtown and Kolkata can be seen through the glasses. The outer part of the entire tunnel covered with lights. The inner part of the tunnel is fully air-conditioned. At the top of the gate, a logo is placed of Biswa Bangla.

My Holiday Story review about Kolkata gate – The hanging restaurant
When I planned for Kolkata gate, I book my ticket from book my show and I select 5:00 pm time slot. I started my journey from ruby EM bypass and reached salt lake college more and then changed another bus to reach Narkel Bagan. I reached earlier this place and visit Rabindra Tirtha first, which is opposite of the Biswa Bangla gate.
If you come for ECO-park, at the time plan for Kolkata gate also. Visit here while returning from Eco park. Or if you only come to visit Biswa Bangla Kolkata gate than come at least 1 hour before and visit Rabindra Tirtha. Which is opposite of the Gate. It will take half an hour to 45 minutes.
