The overall experience was amazing. For Hindus, getting Kali Maa's darshan in her original form is simply blissful. They do not allow camera's and it is recommended that when you go there travel as light as possible. Do not go with wallets and unnecessary back packs. Please be very careful of the Pandits. They will come and tell you that... More

Situated by the river Ganges this place is believed to be blessed by the Great Goddess 'Ma Bhabatarini' or Kali.

One fine day I landed in Kolkata, from the hills of Sikkim. I was staying at my Maternal Uncles place near Tollygunge. I had read the "The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna' and was eager to see Dakhineshwar...to reminisce Thakur's life. So I dragged my reluctant Mama to Dakhineshwar in the morning. It was a little misty when we reached the... More

It is a place of divine peace, spirituality and tranquility. Besides the original temple, the twelve Shivalingas are worth visiting in the same premises. One can idle away time by simply sitting by the newly renovated banks of the River Ganga. The mid-day bhog offered at a very minimal price is very delicious too.
