Great idol of Kali mata. Swami Ramakrishna is lucky to see goddess. Again on the banks of river Ganga. About 10-15 variety of Lingam too. Just be careful of people very rude and money grabbers.

A series of similar looking temples where Ramkrishna Paramhansa was the erstwhile priest. You can ferry to opposite side to Belur where the famous Belur Math is situated.

If you want a frontal darshan of the Mother, choose the line that leads to it. Most other lines... More

Feeling blessed, finally got a chance to get the darshan of Maa. It is a beautiful temple situated on the bank of the Hooghly River. Evening Kirtan and Aarti is extremely mesmerizing and truly a divine experience.

It is a beautiful temple, quite peaceful and located in an amazing location. The temple is really a historical and religious symbol but I really recommend tourists visiting this temple to be careful of touts and pandits who try to take money for donations and for everything.

Maa Kali is my god, where I get solace when I touch my head in mother Kali's feet. Whenever I get opportunity, I try to come here. I believe mother helps when I am in need. Mother Kali is my strength, and Dakshineswar Kali Temple is the place to visit and pray to mother Kali
