Travelled to Dakshineswar Kali Temple on 1 May 18 (Arrived around 6 pm) - a sacred and religious place worth visiting even after all the pain in driving in narrow roads (last 3/4 kms) Shoes Bags Mobile Camera to be deposited at the gate against receipt. An arcade for buying Puja dala nearby, where one can spend as minimum as INR 51.00 to buy the offerings. Quite a long queue inside of the people wished to perform Puja / offering to Goddess Kali. A very tranquail and disciplined set up all round. 12 Shiva temples built alongside by Rani Rashmoni are really impressive. Watched the mother Ganges flowing quietly touching the feet of Mother Kali. One must not miss Mother Sarada’s residence and Panchavati in adjacent plots. The pain in the viscinity due to a SkyWalk being built along Rani Rashmoni Road. Detour thru the Ramakrishna Paramhansa Dev Road a Market area and then turning left at Jadunath Lane, an Armed Forces area and again Tarak Nath Biswas Road, another congested narrow road makes it difficult to drive even small cars. The Temple closed for entry around at 8 pm. Overall the place is worth visiting if one has interest in Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna Paramhansa Dev and Ma Sarada.

As there are several reviews already, let me tell a story instead. A memoir.

Since this temple is just a couple of kilometers away from my home, I was used to go there almost each weekend with my father. Thus, I have several memories there - as a kid, an adolescent, a grown-up person. When he thought I was mature enough, he told me one day: "This is a place where almost everyone associated to the Renaissance of Bengal in the nineteenth century has been, at least for once. Perhaps the stone you are standing on has the footprints of Vivekananda, or Tagore, or Netaji Subhash. Be thrilled, feel the aura: you too are a witness of the religious, intellectual, and cultural milieu that this temple has been hosting for long".

I think that explains better than a review why you, as a traveller, should visit this place, and keep coming back.
