On treasure trail

1. Named after commercial theatres in the Lincoln District, Manhattan, New York City, famous for their musical and non-musical plays, this is one of the most popular multiplexes of Salt Lake, hosting Hollywood, Bollywood as well as regional movies. Located in close proximity of a popular family store, this is not to be missed!

2. If London has a Hyde Park, Calcutta has a Maidan, Salt Lake has this too! A popular haunt for joggers and lovers alike, this is a patch of nature amid a bustling city area. Your next clue waits near the statue of one of the greatest leaders our country has ever produced, who declared war against the British rule, placed adjacent to this greenery.

3. Located in one of the most prominent areas of the township, this institute has gained reputation within a few years as a centre of imparting great education to its students. Named after the city itself, and established in 1984, this institute offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in arts and science.

4. Noted for housing celebrities and political leaders, this block hosts one of the most famous and talked-about Durga pujas of Salt Lake in its sprawling park. It made headlines a couple of years ago for the largest idol.

5. The name itself denotes the word “care”. It is an institute which heals thousands of patients every year.

6. The biggest and most premium mall of Salt Lake proudly hosts a wing of this famous chain of cinema theatres spread across several cities of the nation. People from all over the city visit this place to enjoy their cinema and the ambience. Alongside, they get an opportunity to visit the mall too.

7. The biggest housing estate in Salt Lake also has a vital crossing and bus stop named after it. Today, it forms one of the nerve centres of Salt Lake, where there is also a fair arena and several offices. Work on the Metro Railway expansion project is in full swing here. Buses set off for a neighbouring country from a terminus here.

8. The name means a poetic form that originated in Italy, and has been taken forward by some of the most famous poets over the ages like William Shakespeare, John Milton, William Wordsworth and Robert Frost. Today, we also have a premium business hotel by the same name in Salt Lake.

9. Here stands a former chief minister of Bengal, also a doctor of great repute. Erected at a vital crossing near government offices and buildings located in the heart of Salt Lake, this is our tribute to him.

10. This is a humble reminder of the days gone by. The model of this vintage vehicle is unique indeed, more so when we come to know that it houses a real-life shop inside its bogie! It’s one of the most popular photo-op spots of Salt Lake.
