“Dakshineswar Kali Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

It is a very place where your mind can find peace. One can pray as much time as he/ she likes. You will feel a difference when you enter in the room of Thakur Sri Sri Ramkrishna Paramhansha dev.

“Holi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

We visited Dakshineshwar with 2 local friends as 2 families of 7 people. We started at the Balur Math Temple then crossed the river on a local ferry 10 inr/person where you sit cross legged on the boat deck. We were offered a private boat but decided to go with the locals. Arriving at Dakshineshwar Kali Temple we left our shoes with the shoe man then before we were allowed in to the temple one of our party had to fill in an official book/form stating visa numbers, passport numbers, names etc. Be aware that you will be asked for this information.

I have been to this temple twice in the past but this time as it was late in the evening and also Holi which is a public holiday the queues to see the deity were small so we only had to wait for about 10 minutes. If seeing this is a desire of yours, I'd definitely go towards the end of the day when the sun is setting. As you are in bare feet the ground can be very very hot and you may be waiting hours.

We organised our drivers to drop us at Balur Math, then we got the boat to Dakshieshwar and had the drivers meet us there. One of our drivers was not agreeable to doing this and got angry so make sure you 1) take a local with you and 2) stand your ground, You, after all, are paying his fee!!
