I visited the temple in July 2014 after visiting Belur Math and it was quite startling in comparison. The Mother Kali statue was like nothing I have ever seen before, and was quite beautiful. They gave Prasad and the main shrine was surrounded by twelve Shiva temples, which were very peaceful. There are also some small shops in the temple... More

On the banks of the river this massive temple of Lord Shiva is a definite place to be in when in Kolkatta. The exuding holiness experienced while within the precincts is to be felt in person. Though the surroundings are a bit not too clean, the inside is fairly well maintained.

Its a religious place to go and even for an atheist like me the compound is very serene and peaceful. The best part is that even though it is very popular and considered highly pious temple yet nobody will force you to buy goods for deity offering unlike any other big temples of India. Its on the bank of the... More
