Hi ravi

Although this is not enough time to visit the Mega kolkata city. Still You can visit Victoria Memorial nicely if you hire a taxi. On return touch park street restaurant for quick lunch.

I would suggest you not to visit the main city (Park street or Victoria Memorial). The places are far away from the airport and sometimes even takes 2 hours to reach. The traffic jam is really unpredictable here.

Better to visit nearby areas like Eco Park, Dakshineshwar or Belur.

Eco park - closed on Monday.

Dakshineshwar- the main entrance will be closed in the afternoon but still You can enjoy the ambience and the boat ride on Ganges : )

As mentioned above, you do not have enough time to attempt to go to Victoria memorial or city central. I would also sugest nearby places, like eco-park, or Mothers Wax museum in Rajarhat. From there airport is less than 30 min by taxi and you can chance it. If you try going near Park street area, you will probably miss your flight.

You should try for places near Kolkata airport itself...thus try visiting Eco Park although the park will take quite some time of your halt...Mother's Wax museum is another good option...Monday both Eco Park and the museum stays shut..city centre 2 is a shopping plaza which can also be explored...the main attraction of Kolkata that is Victoria Memorial and all are too off route from the city airport thus better not to take a chance unless having a handy kolkata cab driver at the beck and call..
