About Kalighat Kali Temple

Kalighat Kali Temple is a Hindu temple in Kolkata, West Bengal, India committed to the Hindu goddess Kali. It is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas. Kalighat become a Ghat sacred to Kali on the antique route of the Hooghly river inside the metropolis of Calcutta. The name Calcutta is said to had been derived from the phrase Kalighat. The river over a time frame has moved faraway from the temple. The temple is now at the banks of a small canal referred to as Adi Ganga which connects to the Hoogly.

The Adi Ganga turned into the authentic path of the river Hoogly. Hence the name Adi Ganga. The Kalighat temple in its gift form is only about 200 years old, although it has been referred to in Mansar Bhasan composed in the 15th century, and in Kavi Kankan Chandi of the 17th century. The gift structure of the temple changed into completed beneath the Sabarna Roy Chowdhury circle of relatives's patronage in 1809.

Mention of the Kali temple is likewise determined in Lalmohon Bidyanidhis's 'Sambanda Nirnoy". Only two varieties of cash of Chandragupta II, who included Vanga within the Gupta Empire, are recognised from Bengal. His Archer kind coins, which became the maximum famous sort of coinage with the Gupta rulers after Kumaragupta I, had been observed in Kalighat. This is evidence of the antiquity of the region.
