    Kolkatta is situated on the banks of "Hooghly River". The Hooghly river is actually the holy river "Ganga" but in Kolkatta, it is popularly known as Hooghly River. There is a district known as "Hooghly" in Kolkatta and most of the area irrigated by the Ganga river is in Hooghly only. So, the river was named as Hooghly river.
