It is needless to say that the city of Kolkata and Kali Pujo go hand in hand. In fact, the deity Kali is so much revered among folks, that you can easily find a temple dedicated to her in nearly every nook and corner of the city. Usually, the Puja or celebrations are held in these temples or Kalibari (Kali’s home). Thanthania Kalibari is one of them. Built in 1803, this temple, dedicated to Mata Siddheshwari is one of the oldest religious locations in the state. Visiting this place during festivities is the best way to interact with people and get acquainted with their culture. The temple has a serene surrounding which further gets accentuated by the morning prayers and chantings of the priest and provides you with everything you need for a quiet spiritual detour.

A place where one can calmly sit down and pray. Place is good enough. Well maintained temple. Only drawback being the outside which is congested with people and families of the less fortunate who stay just besides the temple gates thus generating obvious waste and scraps. Someone should look into it and help relocate those people to a decent place and clean the temple outsides as well.
A well known and excellent temple of Ma Kali. It's a century old temple where it is said that the Mother listens to the prayer and fulfills it. At the time of its establishment, this area was vacant and in the dark evenings, a passersby tried to avoid this area because it was infested with dacoits. Now it is one of the crowded and busiest place of north Calcutta, over a main road known as Bidhan Sarani. The space available in the temple is very small.This place is always full of devotees. The idol of Mother Kali is beautiful and worth viewing.
It's a Hindu goddess ma Kali and lord Shiva temple situated.
I believe that there is something special in this Mandir. We can feel the holiness of the Goddess Kali Ma. It is situated near Bata Showroom in College Street at Kolkata.🙏
Always want to be there but possibly can't make it. Open your heart and get your mind full of joyness with inner peace...
