Eden Gardens is the iconic stadium of India, which is situated in Kolkata.

Eden Gardens is the iconic stadium of India, which is situated in Kolkata and is under the control of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). The stadium was built in 1864, making it the oldest stadium in India. Currently, Eden Gardens is the second-largest cricket stadium in India after the recently built Narendra Modi Stadium, and the third-largest in the world.

It has been referred to as “cricket’s response to the Coliseum.” For the majority of international cricketers, it has almost become a place of pilgrimage because of its reputation for hosting the most fervent and vocal crowd. The location hosted India’s first-ever day/night Test match against Bangladesh on November 22, 2019, as part of the second Test of the series.
