  • The temple of Ramakrishna, the great saint of India. If you are going to get there by public transportation, such as changing buses, it is a good idea to check out the directions in advance. A beautifully arranged flower bed and a solemn atmosphere in a large site. Even if you are not a believer, there is an atmosphere that will overwhelm the visitors. Please note that there is a time when admission is available. It is located along the Ganga, so you can take a ferry to the opposite bank. It is a place where the foreigner is hardly seen, and a lot of India people visit it.

  • This temple is only for the religious minded devotees and foreigners who want to see an unusual alter of the Hindu divine gods. The distance from Dakshineshwar kali temple is about 1.2 Km and 10 minutes by toto (battery operated taxies) for 10 rupees or by bicycle rickshaws which will cost 20 Indian rupees which is situated in DD Mondal ghat road. The main alter in temple takes a very unusual configuration three alters one atop the other Sri Ramakrishna at the bottom, then Mother Kali made of 8 metals in the middle and on the top alter murthis of Radha & Krishna known all over India as a divine couple. The main alter is open only between 10.30 to 11.30 a.m. and 6.30 to 7.30 p.m. Temple is open on 52 days of the year on specific days. So check the timings before visiting the temple. This is one the reasons why it’s not popular among non- Indians but it’s worth the visit if your religious minded even if you’re a non-Hindu. Tips for visitors: this is a holy place. So your dress code must be strictly maintained. No short trousers or skirts.no wearing footwear inside the temple and a counter is there for few rupees to keep your footwear safe.do not take photos inside temple and permission is needed from authorities to take any photos even on non-temple areas. Respect the rules set by the temple. They do a lot of charitable work helping the poor (see their website) and you can give a donation according to your means if you like to the office and collect a receipt. Do not forget to visit Dakshineshwar Kali temple which is world famous and situated only 1.2Km away.
