The Ghat was restored by the state's public works department in November 2001 and has since been well-maintained. A two km stretch of the beautified riverfront from Princep Ghat to Babughat was inaugurated in 2012. It has illuminated and landscaped gardens and pathways, fountains, and renovated ghats.

It’s only and only for bachelor couple in the evening to make it memorable apart from that I don’t think it’s a place to be visited.

The Princep ghat is one of the most beautiful place in kolkata if you go there early morning during sunrise or in late afternoon during sunset. Situated on the banks of river ganga and just beneth the great Vidyasagar Setu bridge it gives a perfect background and ambience for the photographers to do thier shoots. And thats why you will find lots of photographers doing their photoshoots over there.
Built by the British in 1843 the monumental is well preserved and there is a ground in front of the monumental where you can lay games with your friends. Along the banks of the river ganga you will find sitting areas amidst the beautiful flowers in the garden. Overall its a very nice place to visit

There is nothing to see here apart a monument building just under the Vidyasagar sethu bridge. You will get a beautiful view of the bridge for shooting photos
