Definitely a peaceful place, but had problems parking my vehicle and standing in long queue. Not recommended on a sunny summer day or a wet day of monsoon. Winter is the best time to visit the temple. Otherwise its quite a calm place compared to kalighat.

Built in the 19th century, this temple really does "liberate you beyond your existence". The compound has 12 shiva lingas, a temple dedicated to Radha Krishna & the beautiful Hoogly river. Visit this temple in the wee early morning hours during sunrise and experience the breathtaking morning aarti & the refreshing breeze of the river. There are hygienic food stalls... More

I'm not normally one who finds peace in crowded temples, but the holiness of this place transcends the roads, the heat, the dust of Kolkata. Here is where Swami Vivekananda met Ramakrishna Paramahamsa for the first time. My first visit was early in the morning, and I did not have to stand in the queue too long to see Kali... More

A worship place of Ramakrishna, where i had a chance to perform bhajans manytime, but my main attraction beside kali mata darshan , is to enjoy the garam garam kochuri, jalebi, saalpata te kalakand and 40 to 50 types of yummy yummy pickels, achar.
