  • This place emits the essence of spirituality. One feels close to the Almighty. Everything about this place is good. The pandas do not harass the visitors like they do in other goddess Kali temples. The vendors are also very disciplined. The only draw back of this place is that the parking charges of this place is exorbitantly high. For parking a car for even less than an hour, I was charged Rs 25/-, which I find is too much. They should reduce the parking charge. Trees should be planted around the temple structure.
  • You are immersed in the spirituality this places exudes. Everyone is in total discipline, queues, shops etc. as compared to other Kali temples. Talking about the architecture, it is very distinct and has a very earthy feeling. The fact that it is on the banks of river Ganges also increases the devotional aspect. You feel very positive coming here. Apart from being a Kali temple, it has multiple Shivlings as well. A recommended place for all.
  • One of the most famous Kali Temple in West Bengal. The place is crowded all the time. A great spiritual place where one can find many Pandits and Sadhus. Tourists and visitors should be aware of some people who will pretend to be helpful try to extract money from them. Go and visit the place,such a peaceful place
  • Historic .. Very well maintained, much better than any other triple l temple of this... The upcoming SKYWALK from the railway station to the temple will be another big attraction. The temple premises is wide spread making it easier for heavy crowd. Bengali translation using Google ঐতিহাসিক .. খুব ভাল রক্ষণাবেক্ষণ, অন্য কোন ট্রিপল এল মন্দিরের তুলনায় অনেক ভালো ... রেল স্টেশন থেকে মন্দির পর্যন্ত আসন্ন স্কোয়াডকে আরেকটি বড় আকর্ষণ হতে হবে। ভারী ভিড়ের জন্য এটি মন্দিরের প্রাঙ্গণ বিস্তৃত।
  • An amazing experience, the temple is so Serene and is so well preserved. It looks as if one has entered medieval era upon entering the premises of this beautiful temple. The best part of this temple is that it's like South Indian temples with no Pandas to harass you.
