Evening Excursion: Sailing towards the Goddess...
Reviewed 22 June 2018

On the bank of the river Hoogly, it is the place where you can have a complete divine feeling, though it is not easy to see goddess Kali in the evening time you can take part in evening arti, kirtan.

The temple dedicated to kali Maa is located on the banks of river Hoogly and is one of the most holiest of temples in Kolkata. The place not only fulfils ones cultural quest but is also a good place to relax.

Visited temple on 16th 12 noon and had a dharsan of goddess kali and lord shiva and hoogly river. Temple management is worst in providing facilities to the devotees as it was noon the flooring at temple is piping hot like tawa and people are struggling to walk especially kids and aged persons were struggling so hard.. temple authority should make some sheds or carpet arrangements more than relishing gods blessings and divine experience people are feeling tired and burning toes and struggling.

Best advice plan to visit this temple at early morning dont ever think any other time post that as its un imaginably tough to enter the temple by walking over piping hot tawa kind of floorings

You will have peace of mind when you visit this place. Well maintained temple along the river side. You will get a picturesque view of the bridge and the Hooghly River.

it is encouraged to visit this as the jewel of the city. it was definitely over the top. however, it is a trap in some ways. too many people pushing and shoving. a woman ran over and smudged paint on my 18 year old daughter's face (bindi-like) and then started screaming at them for money. there is a market close by, but the people make it too uncomfortable to look around. there are pick pockets, so be careful. you don't want to leave your phone or shoes either...
