Jai MAA KALI
कालिकायै विद्महे श्मशानवासिन्यै धीमहि
तन्नो घोरा प्रचोदयात्।
This site is put up by a Kali Bhakta for the benefit of the Bhaktas visiting Kalighat temple.
This is not a commercial site. We do not offer on line pujas or collect money in any manner.
This site will give the history, legend, location and other information about the Kalighat Kali temple. A photo gallery is also included.
Kalighat is located in the city of Calcutta on the banks of the river Hooghly (Bhagirathi). The name Calcutta is said to have been derived from the word Kalighat. The river over a period of time has moved away from the temple. The temple is now on the banks of a small canal called Adi Ganga which connects to the Hooghly.
The views expressed in this site are that of a Bhakta who spends at least one hour every day in the temple. The comments and opinions of the Devotees of MAA KALI are welcome. Please give your experiences about MAA and her kindness. This could very well be the start of a Sathsang.
