I go to Dakshineshwar temple virtually every time I visit Kolkatta and the vibes are outstanding. I just wish the Trustees would keep bins at more places so people would stop littering. The temple closes at 1.30 pm and then opens again in the evening...More

Mobiles and shoes have to be deposited - long queues. Better to leave them in the car if you have the option. 70% of the times, darshan are from the side! We loved the boat ride to belur math from the temple.

This is the center of spirituality of Kolkata. Going on an important festival day or on Sunday morning can be challenging as the crowd is huge. It is best to go early in yhe morning and them have hinger kochuri after that

take suburban train from Sealdah to Dakshineswar station. Then take a ferry to Belur Math. You can do both in about 3-4 hrs. At Dakshineswar you may encounter crowds and Belur Math is closed from 12 to 4 pm
