I visited Dakshineswar Mandir multiple times with my friends. No matter whenever you visit, you will find this place overcrowded. But the ambiance inside and the breeze of the river Ganga will make it worth visiting. You can spend an hour of two inside the temple and roaming around. Crossing the river via boat could be a good experience.

Very famous temple and as the road was being repaired, the car was parked half a Kilometer away. Long walk. Very crowded. Could not enter the main temple. Go early around 5:30 a.m. if you wish to enter main temple quickly. Nice view of Hoogly river .
