How I went:

I reached Kalighat by taxi (runs by meter)…it was about Rs.60 from Park Street. I took the help of a Panda (pundit) to guide me( it need not be done)..I would advise you to go straight with some 108 hibiscus mala costing Rs.6 and ask for the line that goes inside the garba graham(inner sanctorum)..a wait of ½ hour will take you inside..if u want a good dharshan avoid Tuesdays, Saturdays…you may do well to pay the priest inside Rs.10 ..normally they allow you to touch her feet and there is water running down her to keep her cool..they may give a little water from trikle on her….there is a shivva temple and another temple where you may do a pooja at Rs 5 with materials they give.

From here I left for Dakshineswar which is quite far away. It cost me Rs.200 by taxi. You can have a bath in river ganges, collect wate from ganges and pour on 12 shiv lingas that are there and offer prayer then proceed to worship kali..they sell some sweets and flower to offer her right outside the temple..you can buy that and offer her..From here getting a txi back was an ordeal…taxi stand guys are idling away and don’t want to come..so you can take a share auto to a place nearby and then take a taxi….
