Temple surrondings are under maintenance now.It is better to go by launch or boat from Belur for convenience.Car parking is also available at a distance.

the ambiance inside & outside of the temple is great. A must visit place at kolkata. The temple is on the bank of river Ganga. You can see two bridges side by side while sitting the ghat at the temple.

People who are visiting kolkata them must visit the Temple. It will take 2-3 hours to complete the puja after reaching the temple. I can surely say that you will get lots of mental peace at the temple.
