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.

  • One of the most popular and famous temple and certainly holiest one. Surroundings not clean and panda, thieves are there in strong numbers. Ma and Temple both superb. Management should take take necessary steps to make it more neat and clean.

  • I have visited many temples but I have never experienced anything like this. The temple grounds were buzzing with people, and we would not have been able to find our way without the guidance, both physical and spiritual, from a priest which we much appreciated. I expected to give to the temple, but I was surprised at how much was expected. Even so it was an incredible experience which lingers long.

  • Nothing adverse to comment about this Kali temple.Exceptionally good in all respect. Entry passage should be widened to facilitate the devotees free and ease access. "'BHOG" of Ma Kali is superb and praiseworthy. To get it, one should contact temple office.

  • Most famous and holy temple in the area. Specially on Saturday there is a huge crowd of devotees outside the temple . It is very old story that one has to be careful from priest as there is no such disturbance, u can go to the temple without any priest and perform Puja by your own.

  • One of the oldest holy places of kolkata. The place is most of the time crowed. Just to see the goddess you have to wait for long hours the wait is worth it. Along with the big temple there are small temples as well
