This temple is not only really pretty and unique in its architectural style, but it also has a great atmosphere due to the Hindus coming to pray and bathe in the Ganga.

Admission is free, though shoes are not allowed and must be stored for 2 rupees, and all photography is restricted, though I saw many locals taking photos anyway.

And I suggest taking the 30-40 minute 10 rupee rickety wooden ferry to Belur Math Shrine (note though that this site closes between noon and 3:30 pm).

This is the place where you found real tranquality.fresh air of ganges.Sri Ramkrishna dev sworship place. On 31 May 1855 Rani Rashmoni had the Kali temple[1] along with twelve Shiva temples & a Radha Krisna temple on a single premises installed on the occasion of the Hindu festival of Snanyatra.At the time, nine lakh rupees were spent by the Rani for this occasion.From here you can go to Balur Math by boat.
