Dear Student,

The black hole of Calcutta was a small prison or dungeon in Fort William where a large number of British prisoners were held captive by the army of the Nawab of Bengal, for one night. Since many people were there in such a small place hence the black hole of Calcutta is sometimes used to represent the gathering of a large number of people in a small room or place.
