Dakshineswar Temple, Visit Dakshineswar Temple of West Bangal, Temple tour of Dakshineswar Temple, Religious place
Situated about 20km north of the city and across the River Hooghly is a temple dedicated to goddess Kali, a form of Goddess Parvati the consort of Lord Shiva. Built in 1855 by Rani Rashmoni, this temple complex was the place where the saint Sri Ramakrishna attained his enlightenment.

The main temple is called the Navaratna Temple. There is a silver lotus with a thousand petals here on which stands the deity of the Goddess. Within the complex are 12 mini temples of Shiva. A temple dedicated to Rani Rashmoni has later been added near the entrance. The Panchavati, a congregation of five ancient trees, in the temple premises, is a spot for peaceful meditation.

This temple was built by Rani Rashmoni between 1847 and 1855. The 12- spired temple with its massive courtyard has a shrine to Goddess Kali in the center, bounded by other temples devoted to Lord Shiva and Radha Krishna. It is a world well-known place of pilgrimage.
