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.

One Temple where you are not harassed by the Pandas (Priests) It is well organized and the devotees stand in a queue where there is no pushing/shoving. Very clean unlike most Hindu temples. Must have the Bhog (Prasad served as lunch) over there for which one has to purchase the coupon in the morning. Across the Ganga river you can... More

One of the most popular & Historical temple of Kolkata. One of the must watch places of Kolkata. You may spend a peaceful evening time in the bank of Ganges.

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.
