This is one of the great temples in Kolkata which has a lot of religious importance for the locals as well as aesthetic value for the tourists. It was made in the 19th century with a dedication to the goddess Bhavatarini, a reincarnation of Kali. Rani Rasmani, a wealthy woman got this temple constructed because of her devotion for the goddess. The temple is located on the banks of river Ganga and has quite a breath-taking view all around. One can either take a ferry or a train to reach this place. Do not forget to take proper footwear and an umbrella to safeguard from the heat.
Kalighat Road, Kolkata (Calcutta)
Next stop was Kalighat Temple, 500 years old Goddess Kali temple is equally good to visit as Dakshineshwar Temple. And we have seen the shots from there in a famous movie of Vidya Balan's KAHANI. White uniform wearing Policemen in Calcutta can be found everywhere near the temple and you're aren't allowed to photograph here. From Kalighat, we headed to Howrah Bridge and VidyaSagar Setu. My personal favorite is Vidya Sagar Setu because it exactly looks like Brookyn Bridge in NYC. You don't believe me? Leave a ping and I'll share the pictures i have clicked and then you'll probably trust me. You can do boating there in a happening boat with some old songs playing and romantic lighting just for 150 bucks. Rights by the side is millenium park where you can see love birds hanging around and some seriously tasty bengali Puchka. Other places I saw on the fly like Tipu Sultan Mosque, Shaheed Minar and how could i forget, world famous Eden Gardens. And ending the day with it being my Birthday, I landed up in Park street for some good food in One Step Up And hopped to a 100 years old Jewish Bakery Nahoum and sons in New Market(worth going if you love bakery stuff) to get fruit cake on my birthday and some sweet cheese.So this was what i had from my birthday trip which was cheaper then what i had to spend if i was partying in Hauz Khas or Cyber Hub.
Kalighat, Kolkata, West Bengal 700026, India
From there we went to Birla Temple, Kalighat Temple, and Esplanade. I tried Grape Pulp Juice, Fire Paan, and freshly made Ice cream as well! On the first day, I couldn't help but compare my previous encounters with the city and I was surprised to see how everything appears different when your perspective grows with age. I was able to appreciate the architecture, culture, lifestyle and authenticity of the place more!

As our bus stopped for first place at Jain temple. I saw a men and a child following his dad for purchase of some grocery. Both of them wearing only Towel and Shorts and rest of the body was open. The only reason was the Humidity over there.
Jain Temple, it was a beautiful temple build with marble outside and interior full of mirrors. One can click photos from outside the temple, but photography was restricted inside. This temple was big, and having buildings near by with great interior.
