Akashvani Bhavan, Eden Gardens Road, Kolkata, West Bengal - India

This building was completed in the year 1958. In the same year All India Radio shifted from its old building at 1, Garstin Place, Kolkata, to this new building. The architecture is an excellent synthesis of Buddhist and Hindu Temple architecture. Akashvani Bhavan is right in front of the famous Eden Gardens on the West, on the North East is Raj Bhavan (Governor's House), on the North is the State Assembly House & on the East is the famous Octorloney Monument. Great performers both national & international have performed here. And All India Radio Kolkata have broadcast those 'Live' & recorded performances for it's innumerable devoted listeners.
