  • 1st time i went to this place about 13 years ago that time people's are doing worship from the bottom of their heart and all temple authority members are very helpful but now a days its totally commercial everyone is here for finding a way by which they can earn money and so many useless rules they are putting on all the people who came for visiting instead of making stronger and more securing the places by putting new technology.... Though sky walk is the greatest innovation by West Bengal government which are very useful and helpful for so many people ...

  • Very peaceful atmosphere. Close to banks of the river. Neatly maintained courtyard. Easily accessible with metro rail connectivity. Good pay and park facility.
  • It's one of the most beautiful temples I have ever visited. It's having a very pleasant atmosphere. The best time to visit this temple is early morning or evening. This temple is one of the oldest temples of India. Mobile phones are strictly prohibited inside. There is a counter where we can keep it safe at a charge of 3 rupees only.
  • Great place to visit. Goddess Bhavatarini is worshipped in this temple. It has a huge parking lot. Mobile phone, camera, bags and shoes are not allowed inside the main temple. You have to submit them to the counter and they will give you a token which will be needed to get them back.
