Located in the banks of Ganga this temple has a story that dates about 100 years ( in the Indian context that would be recent) Its a temple that does not have "porohits" ( which is a blessing as they can be disturbing) .. The banks of the river is clean therefore one can actually sit for hours and spend... More

We visited the Dakshineshwar Temple during out visit to Kolkata. After standing in queue for over 45 minutes, the gates were opened and though we were at the front of the gate, other younger devotees just pushed us aside and just rushed in. We ended up at that tail end of the queue. Wish the local police maintain the discipline... More

This is one of those places where you're actually allowed to be ONE with the Almighty. Unlike the other Kali temple, where the "pandas" whack the living daylights out of you and is infamous for extraction and hooliganism, this one's quieter and beautiful. Can be visited alongside the Belur Math if you've a day at hand as this one's in... More

One of the most well maintained, organized, clean and vibrant temples anywhere in India. Go early morning or early evening as it can get very hot in the afternoon. Dont bother to buy offerings till you have reached the "Dala Arcade" just outside the temple. The lines are long but move quite fast. Must visit Ramakrishna Paramhansa's room and the... More

There are total 14 temples altogether in the campus. Main temple is of Goddess Kali (commonly known as Maa Bhabatarini), one temple is of Radha - Krishna... More
