An ancient site - although the building of the temple is new. Part of the history of Kolkata - as it was originally called after Kalighat. \Well worth visiting - But dont get scammed.

You have to be very careful in this place. The temple is hijacked by touts and brokers. A good temple badly maintained by the authorities.

I donot why government is so quite on the current condition of this temple. Don't get scared temple is good place to visit but the only here is mismanagement,money demanding pandits :p.

It is highly recommended to skip this destination if possible. There's absolutely no point in visiting it. Its more of a business centre than a temple. "Officially recruited" pandits will catch you every now and then and ask you for extra money so as to enable you to enter the VIP or VVIP or VVVIP lines for darshan with the... More

Kalighat Kali temple is one of the prominent temples of the country. It is one of the 52 Shakti Peethas. Your visit to Kolkata is incomplete if you haven't visited the temple. Visitors go to temple to pray for safe journey back to home.
