The Kalighat temple, dedicated to Goddess Kali, is one of India's most venerated and visited daily by thousands of pilgrims from all over the country. And one of the main attractions of the city of Calcutta. Originally built on the homonymous ghats of the river Hoogly, now sits on the banks of a small canal called Adi Ganga. It is not known exactly when it was built, probably around 1500, but became an important temple in 1800 when the family Sabarna Roy Choudhury, who at that time reigned in Bengal, decided to build a large new building.

Science City Kolkata

April 12, 2015 Kalyan Panja 0 Comments


Want fun. Science City an initiative for the promotion and popularization of science is an amusement park as one can expect to see in India. At the entrance you take notes of the attractions you want to do. Visiting the Prehistoric caves scares rainy days, and can be of the impression that it can turn into a horror movie. Otherwise the theater space, the machines here are adventures back in time! Then we find all rooms scientific experiments and mirrors and dusty fishes.
