“Dakshineswar - Modern Pilgrimage”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Approach road from station to temple has improved a lot. The premise is neat and free from hawkers or beggars. Security appeared to be tight. The temple illumination at night is ethereal. The Ganges, the 12 Shiva temples, the nat mandir, Ma Bhabotarini the presiding deity, the Panchaboti, all the dusts carrying memories of Sri Ramakrishna makes the visit a piligrimage everytime I am able to go. Reminiscing my last visit while writing this review is making my eyes well and heart longing to go again......

“Without the problem of Pandas (Priests)”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The best thing about this Kali temple is you can do the Pujas without being disturbed by pandas/priets unlike other temples. This place has a reach heritage - Rani Rasmoni built the temple and lord Ramakrihna deb used to be a priest here and people say here he got to see Goddess Kali for the first time. This is the place where Swami Vivekananda also visited but he was not able to ask for material benefits and was prayed for knowledge. It was a nice experience to visit such place.

“Crowded place but worth visiting”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The temple itself is worth visiting for it's different architectural style . The tourist and devotee rush is pretty high. The crowd inside the temple is difficult to manage. The parking is little away from the temple.

“Kali Temple on Ganges”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

You can reach via a ferry or via a boat. This temple is situated on the banks of river Ganges. The temple is huge and well built with a huge courtyard around the temple. There are 12 shrines for Lord Shiva overlooking the river.

When you travel from train, the temple is clearly visible. Again, huge part of Bengali folklore.
