Maidan or Moidan as pronounced in Kolkata is vast strech of land in the middle of the city. You can always see some soccer being played here, a lot of attractions nearby. best thing is to just walk around and see the city bustling around you with ambassador taxis and Trams etc.

The locality surrounding Victoria Memorial comprises of extensive lawns known as 'The Maidan'. You'll get good street food here. It's also one of those places where you'll find people of all ages either exercising or playing a sport in the morning.
