Every country has it's USP.When we talk about India,our USP is spirituality. The place Dakshineswar is one of the heritage temple in the eastern part of the our motherland Bharatbhumi. It is said Goddess Shyama resides here. Situated in the banks of river Hoogly it is an ideal place for meditation.

Visited in Hot May during mid week on a working day from Salt lake. The darshan was soul quenching. As it was not crowded we could have a peaceful darshan. Though we reached by 8.30 AM, the wait in the que was not so comfortable. Mobile & cameras not allowed inside. The ferry to Belur math was also not on.

Dakshineswar Kali Temple is one of the famous place in Kolkata. I think It's only 3KM from DumDum airport. Nice place for relax. Definitely a good place for a small trip with your family. I think It's a good place to fresh your mind. But Food is not good, Hotels are not upto mark.
