More than 300 years ago, family members of Sabarna Roy
Choudhury built the Muktakeshi Kali temple. Today the
temple attracts hundreds of pilgrims from all over
South Bengal. The pictursq temple is situated on western
banks of river Hooghly, overlooking Vivekananda bridge.
The famous Dakshineshwar Kali temple is situated just
opposite it, across Hooghly river.
It is said that during her search for a suitable site,
Rani Rasmoni selected this place for her temple.
However, Ma Kali told her in her dream to build the
temple on eastern side of river Hooghly as She was
already residing on the temple of the Sabarna family.
