Faith & only Faith will help you wade through the always crowded Kali Goddess temple at Central-South Kolkata.. Easily Avoidable Visit although very respected within the locals. Extremely dirty due to accumulation of flowers, water, leaves & combination of them..

Next to kalighat tram depot, opposite to kalighat kali temple road. Serene, tranquil, peaceful, no words will be enough to describe the mental Peace you will experience the moment you step inside this simple building.

I'd normally not give a place of worship 1 star, but I'm rating the *experience* rather than the *place* itself, and so feel compelled to warn others who may want to come. We got out of our Uber and walked toward the main entrance when...More

There is a little long queue on 8th March, but the pandits forcibly drove us to go in separate lane by taking some money. There is no clear Darshana at all if you fall in with the word of those obstacle and cheating pandits... More
