As goes the saying 'Jai Kali Kalkatte Wali', the city of Kolkata is always identified by Goddess Kali.

Kalighat, the oldest neighbourhood of South Kolkata houses the famous Kali temple, built by a member of Sabarna Roy Choudhury's family around 15th century AD in Bengali aat-chala form along the banks of Adi Ganga (old Ganges), whose holy water once blessed the inhabitants of Kolkata and served as an outlet to the Bay of Bengal. The temple is still visited by a number of pilgrims from around the world every day.

 

Other than Kali temple, Kalighat preserves various other architectural remains and art forms, a garden built in South Indian Style, a five pinnacle memorial temple, church, gurudwara, a home for the dying, maternal home of a famous Bengali poet who was born there, the famous potua para of Kalighat where originated the Kalighat painting in the 19th century Bengal, the paintings over a period of time developed as a distinct school of Indian painting.

 

Come, walk through the lanes and bylanes of Kalighat, each and every corner of the place has a story to say, keep two of your sense organs open and Kalighat will never cease to amaze you!

 

Let's explore the rich history and unique architecture together on the day beforbefore Kali puja.
