About Thanthania Kalibari

Estimated to have been built more than 300 years ago, Thanthania Kalibari is an ancient religious place in Kolkata. It is believed to have been completed in 1803 by Shankar Ghosh. The temple is dedicated to Mata Siddheshwari, an incarnation of Goddess Durga. The idol of the Goddess is also ancient and made up of clay. However, it retains the spiritual charm till today. Followers of the temple paint the idol every year in red and black and numerous devotees from across the country come here to offer prayers. The best time to visit the temple is in the evening as the 'Sondhya Aarti' is conducted every day, which is a must see. On occasions like Durga Puja, Diwali or Kali Puja, it is hard to find some space for your feet. Tuesdays and Saturdays are considered good for a visit to the temple.

Historical Context: This is one of the oldest temple and dedicated to Goddess Kali
