February 2018: The temple is located on the eastern bank of Hooghly river and has a great history with huge temple complex. There is nice arrangement for holy darshan of Maa Kali by facilitating entry to the sanctum sanctorum through multiple entry points. There are twelve temples of Lord Shiva on the riverfront side and other temples too in the temple complex. There is one exit to and entry from river bank side also. I really felt blessed by getting the opportunity to visit Dakshineswar Kali Temple. When we enter the temple complex, parking & deposit lockers are on the left hand side and some restaurants are on the right hand side, as we move forward main temple is on left hand side and prasad market on the right hand side. There is a statue of Swami Vivekanand, Lokmata Rani Rasmoni Mandir and a library also in the temple complex. The architecture of the temple is very impressive. This is a must visit place in Kolkata.
