The temple is located near the banks of Ganga and witnesses huge crowd who comes to worship goddess Kali. There is also a small park near it and also has a ferry ride facility. The best thing you can see the sunset which is very serene and humbling.

We visited this temple in July this year.Devotees immersed in the divine feeling & presence of Mana Kali forget about the worldly affairs once inside the temple. I could feel the divine blessings of Maa Kali after entering in the temple premises. Feeling blessed that she gave me an opportunity for visiting this holy place. Hope she will call me... More
