About Kalighat Kali Temple, Kolkata

Kolkata was named after this temple and chiefly because of this fact, hundreds of visitors are fascinated by this temple every day. A classic showcase of Kolkata itself, the temple is a heady mix of dirt, crowds and spirituality. Kalighat is a mad, smelly, dirty, wonderful, vibrant, crazy place that is really like the beating heart of this city of poets and dreamers. If you love Kolkata, you'll love Kalighat. Every year, goats and other harmless animals are sacrificed to please the mighty goddess Kali. Even when she is pleased, you are not forgiven the long wait to get a glimpse of the deity.

  • It's one of the reputed pith of 51 kalipiths arounding Indian sub-continent. Best day to worship here are Tuesday and Saturday. This place are crowded ever. The best ever choice to there is Metro. But, pandas are too much money thirsty. Take care of your pocket.

  • It is one of the most sought after TEMPLE. It is an old temple in KOLKATA. MA KALI IS WORSHIPPED HERE.

  • I amazed to see this painting. And realized childhood's Diwali moment. When, we were constructed portable play home at house.

  • It is a very old temple of pre and colonial time. Very sacred place. The goddess of power, MA Kali, is worshipped here. The market is nice if any can bargain efficiently. The entrance must be widened.

  • Ver famous Hindu temple, much crowded and so is not a clean place. The pandits are just to earn and fill their pockets. Don’t get fooled by them. Have your faith and regards for the god and not such pandits.
