Fairly well maintained kali temple for progressive Hinduism. By the side of Ganges and diagonally across Belur Math. The temple was made by Rani Rashmoni and Sri Ramakrishna was the pujari.

I purchased flowers & other puja items and also left my shoes behind in one of the many shops outside the main temple complex. Mobiles, camera are not allowed inside main temple complex. There...
