Never counted the number of times I have visited the temple. But the review is for our visit during last Nov. When we visited the temple in the evening it wasn't crowded at all.

Must go if you are in Kolkata. Temple architecture is excellent. Template location is crowded and leads to jams.

Though it was the end of the day , there were hundreds of people standing in orderly queues to get a darshan of the Goddess. The security was perfect, people could make their offerings in peace and offer prayers... More

One of the oldest temple in Kolkata. On the backyard is wide, long beautiful River. People are allowed to take bath in river water. Temple building is nicely carved and cool breeze all around. Worth a visit for couple of hours. One can take a boat ride to Belur Math from Dakshineshwar temple post 3:30 - 4 pm during winters... More
