Indira Gandhi Sarani
Indira Gandhi Sarani, formerly Red Road, is a road in Kolkata that runs from Raj Bhavan to Fort William. The road, a wide boulevard, was built in 1820. It bisects the Kolkata Maidan. The British authorities intended for the road to be able to host large parades. The name 'Red Road' was given due to its surfacing.
The name 'Indira Gandhi Sarani' was adopted in 1985.
