My kalighat memories have to do with crazy crowds, even more the pandas and dirt all around. Having visited crystal clean temples in the south for years it is hard to step in these kind of places unless the religious call supersedes all these angles. I have noticed th at all tourists to kolkata head here and belur, dakshineshwar etc.... More

I visited the place in July 2014. Unfortunately, it is very dirty and very crowded. That place is full of people asking for money for the Temple!

Awesome temple and great experience here, River Ganga flow next to it. On touching Ganga river felt like auspicious even though the river is bit dirty.

This temple is cute as usual and fully under the control of thwarts who makes darshan a real pain. I would like to see a Kalighat with out middle man, who does not even allow us to stand in regular Que.

This is an old temple of Goddess Kali. Sacred place. But Pandas are very disturbing, they just want to loot visitors. So visitors should be conscious. What you want to offer to Goddess Kali, you decide, buy from the shop of pandas and do not get influenced by them. Worship and pray. That's all.

You will go for Ma kalii darshan but end of the you feel cheated by pandits there.. They will scare you by the name of kali so just dont hear them and follow the queue like other devotees.. If you will go with them they will charge you minimum 500 bucks ..SO avoid an any cost

Thank Umeshalexander
