Sacred Place but badly managed.

It is surrounded by beggars & touts. Inside temple its too much of rush. Prob the people who pay only gets to have Darshan... Rest can just pray.

Pujaris also agressive about money collection for Darshan.

Should only be visited if you are really keen on it else simple avoid & have faith on Maa Kali.

Maa Bless All...

Pandas of all hues keep waiting to pounce on unsuspecting pilgrims with promises of VIP Entry and by-passing ques to have a quicker darshan. Surroundings are utterly dirty and no one seems to bother...

The temple surroundings are unclean. There are queue breakers and then when you enter in the temple the priests grab your hand and ask u for money like they are asking for ransom. U'd get looted if you are unaccompanied by a local.

Be aware if you visit Kalighat Kali Temple, right out side the temple at the entrance you will find thieves dressed as holy priests who will yell at u and start demanding money from you. I lost Rs. 1500 and when i inquired with my guide, he narrated a incidence where a person was robbed of Rs.4000 few days back. please be aware of these guys when u visit the temple. don't fall prey to the tricks of these priests .
