There is no pressure of hiring service of ant priest and there is expensive special queues. You might see long queue on Tuesday and Saturday, but they wouldn't keep you standing more than... More

Very nice place to visit for both pious and general public. Nice complex to enjoy activities of devoted and faithful Hindu people. Place is related to Greats like Swami Vivekananda, Rama Krishna and Maa Sarada. Better to visit early in the morning or afternoon.

Long drive from Gariahat and was lucky to make it in time before their closing at 12.30. After a brief line up and surrendering all the cell phones and shoes at the gate we made our way to the sanctum and offered our prayers. It was pleasant weather and the temple was not overly crowded around noon. Afterwards we took... More

The entrance is a bit messy because of skywalk construction. Once inside the temple premise everything is so calm & quiet. After offering the puja one can sit in the meditation hall or on the steps of the Shiva Temples or on those leading to the Ganga. Close your eyes, meditate & feel the serenity.

This site really takes you back in time. It was a bit of a trek to get there, with tight security as well, but the visit was well worth it. Seeing Ma Kali for just a brief millisecond made it that much more profound. I especially felt moved again, visiting Sri Ram Krishna's living quarters. A great experience.

the ambiance inside & outside of the temple is great. A must visit place at kolkata. The temple is on the bank of river Ganga. You can see two bridges side by side while sitting the ghat at the temple.
