Excellent place for sight seeing. I would recommend you to visit in the after noon or evening. Enjoy sitting and relaxing in Natmandir and the vast courtyard.Try to avoid hindu festive occasions as the crowd will be too much. And above all- BEWARE OF PICK POCKETS. The Police is also corrupt here.

On my trip to Kolkata, I visited the famous Kali Temple. Since Kolkata is all about Goddess Durga and Kali, a visit here is a must on your trip to Kolkata.

I visited this temple with my family this year. We have to leave your foot wear half a Km away and walk bare leg. If it is summer, it will be difficult for you. It is a good old temple , which represents the Hindu culture.

It is a Hindu temple situated at the eastern banks of the River Ganga. You can join in morning and evening prayer. It is very pleasant to sit beside the river side. It brings peace in mind and body.

I went on a Wednesday evening and the temple was not crowded at all. It is a peaceful place where priests don't hassle you at all. Loved it!

This is the one holy place in kolkata where you will not be tourchered by any pandit. I like this place after each visit I like to sit in ganga ghat.
