Muktakeshi Kali Temple

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.
