Nakhoda Masjid, Zakaria Street, Kolkata
“Islam has always been an urban faith, ill at ease with the wilderness; its civilization has always flourished most successfully in the labyrinths of the ancient bazar towns of the East. Certainly there can be no doubt that Islam looks at its most impressive in a great urban cathedral mosque, especially on an occasion like Id.”
William Dalrymple, City of Djinns

Although historians doubt about the authenticity but it was this Yunnan Province that gave the world the habit of drinking tea. But for several centuries tea remained a medical beverage. It is not known when the ancient Chinese Medical beverage transformed into the most popular beverage in the world.
