  Bengal - History of Dakshineshwar Next Page  
Dakshineshwar  kali

Dakshineshwar in Hooghly district is known for its Kali temple, made famous through its association with Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the spiritual Guru of the religious leader Swami Vivekananda.

Queen Rasmani the renowned queen of Janbazar, was the founder of this temple. In the year 1847, dreamed the wealthy widow Rani Rasmani dreamed the Divine Mother, in the form of the goddess Kali.

She appeared to the Rani in a dream and said, "There is not need to go to Banaras. Install my statue in a beautiful temple on the banks of the

Ganges River and arrange for my worship there. Then I shall manifest myself in the image and accept worship at that place." Profoundly affected by the dream, Rani immediately purchased land from Mr. Hasti, and promptly began construction of the temple; it needs the time from 1847 to 1855. It cost an estimated Rs.

9 lakhs of which, Rs. 2 lakhs was spent on the day of inauguration. The temple and its adjoining areas stand on 25 acres of land. The Ganga River flows beside the temple. To the east there are 12 Shiva temples. To the north of the Kali-temple is a Dalan of Radha-Krishna. There is a sort of courtyard behind the Shiva temple. Here stands the main temple where everyday, the mother Goddess is worshipped with ardent fervors, pomp and with great devotion. There is a long spacious Natmandir (Dancing hall) in front of the temple, where the goddess Dakshina Kali stands on the breast of Shiva. There are other subsidiary shrines on this temple compound. The temple, in conventional Nava-ratna style, measures 46 feet square and rise over 100 feet high. The temple is a large elongated building standing on a high platform with a flight of stairs. It is one of the largest temples of Calcutta. The temple compound on three sides - north, east and south - is enclosed by rows of guestrooms and offices.
