Don't listen to the approaching... More

Very bad experience. I was told to be cautious from pundits. I went there with family and I was asked to open shoes in a shop. They said all the prasad would cost just 200 rs that too to be paid after puja. There are gang of robbers who will rob you at every point. I was asked to pay... More

Felt like most hyped religious temple in Kolkata. This temple is filled with most cheating temple authorities in and around. As soon as you arrive near temple you will be greeted with temple authorities with lust and greed. They will tell all possible lies to extract maximum money from you for a religious visit to temple. They will inform you... More

This temple is quite old. Ma Kali is there for long time and worshiped by pilgrims. There are many shops to purchase sweets and fruits for worshiping Kalimata. The temple is nicely decorated and secured by Kolkata police. At and after 9 pm, the main gate is closed although pilgrims can go through side doors. The temple is well connected... More

Long queue of devotees and in the end you get the Darshan for whom you were waiting... :) Still there are special queues, by which you can have darshan quickly and save time.
