I had last visited the Mandir in 2001 and it was quite heartening to see that a lot of things have actually improved over the years, especially the security measures. The whole place looked quite organised and the darshan of Kali Ma actually elevated the whole experience of the visit. One must make sure to take a ferry ride to... More

Morning prayer with the holy feelings of the surrounding and river Ganges makes feel out of the world. Room where Thakur stayed for 25 long years along with Nahabat, where Sarada Maa stayed adds to the divinity. One can feel the... More

I took an Uber to go to the temple. It was parked near railway station and I took a cycle ricksha 20 Rs to reach temple. It was a Sunday and was little crowded. I didn't go inside but took a walk around. Lot of merchants near by dragging you to buy Pooja stuff. The back entrance to temple next... More

While visiting Dhakshineshwar temple, recommend to visit 1. Sri Ramakrishna's room 2. Hoogly river right next to temple 3. Take a boat to Belur Mutt in the other bank of Hoogly Belur Mutt is closed between 12:30-3:30pm. Planning your trip around this is suggested.

It was a very divine experience visiting this magnificent temple. very well maintained and feel a lot of positive vibrations. As it is situated on the banks of Ganges you can see the river and may be if you have a time take the ferry to cross over the river and visit Belur Mutt...over all a very nice experience..

Though we should ideally not give reviews about religious places. The only reason, I'm doing it is that people should visit this place. This place is pious and gives you a heavenly feeling.. It's a big area with 10-12 shiv lingas.. May maa Kali shower blessing on all...
