Dakshinewar Kali Temple Kolkata


The architecture, grounds and decoration of this temple complex is fascinating and very photogenic. Unfortunately, I cannot take the interior photographs.

Dakshinewar is a very renowned Temple in Kolkata. It is an interesting site but far from the city center (we were staying at Sudder St.).Entering the temple premises, you’ll be told to watch your wallet and be careful and respectful. The area is bustling with beggars and handicapped people, the place is more crowded than a rock festival. Taking a guide through the poorer Indian people in the area, you arrive at the ancient Kali temple on foot. Taking photos inside is strictly forbidden, not welcomed and not acceptable.Dak2 Dak3 Dak4 dak5 Dak6 Dak7 Dak8
