Did you know?

The Tollygunge Club was founded in 1895 by Sir William Cruikshank as a meeting place for British merchants and bankers, who sought refuge from Calcutta's sweltering heat. The club, located on a former indigo plantation, was effectively the first country club of its kind in India with a unique collection of flora and fauna that are rare enough to be found in prestigious botanical gardens.

Prior to the locality being named Tollygunge it was known as Russapugla. It was renamed Tollygunge after Colonel William Tolly was permitted to dredge the adjoining canal connecting the Ganga with the Matla and Vidya rivers.


  • Tollygunge Club:Tollygunge offers overnight accommodation in 67 onsite luxury rooms and suites. Only Tolly members are permitted to book the rooms.
