Dharmatala Kolkata is a storehouse of history of Kolkata due to the many phases it has come down over the centuries. It was spelt differently previously but now it is Dharmatala Kolkata only. It is situated in the central Kolkata and it was rechristened as Lenin Sarani, yet a huge area about this place is referred to as Dharmatala Kolkata. It is a busy commercial place with shopping promenade and boulevard of showrooms and boutiques. Right there a very famous and prestigious hotel stands. There are movie halls and pavement hawkers selling stuff throughout the day. Dharmatala was built in 1834 and along with it the Tipu Sultan Mosque too was built there. In the 18th century, there was no trace of Dharmatala the way it is now. There were many shady trees and ponds over here back then.
After the British victory of Plassey, the British people built the Fort William in 1763 and the maidan nearby looked attractive to them. They decided to leave the lanes and biplanes of old Kolkata and to come to settle near the Maidan which is a landmark of this place. The Esplanade and Chowringhee were inhabited by the whites and thus known as the white area. Indians were not allowed to come to this area. Later on, the Portuguese came to settle around this area along with other people from different communities.
