Photographer's Note

I have taken this shot at Dakkhineswar Ghat near Dakkhineswar Temple in the beautiful evening....This I took from the steps approaching the Ghats.I had to move up and down the steps till I got this image...One of the famous temples devoted to Goddess Kali in Eastern India. The temple is situated beside the river Ganges which shaped the Indian Geology religion, life and philosophy. Life around the river is an instant mix of the past and the present.
The temple compound, apart from the nine-spired main temple, contains a large courtyard surrounding the temple, with rooms along the boundary walls. There are twelve shrines dedicated to Shiva—Kali's companion—along the riverfront, a temple to Radha-Krishna, a bathing ghat on the river, a shrine dedicated to Rani Rashmoni. The chamber in the northwestern corner just beyond the last of the Shiva temples, is where Ramakrishna spent a considerable part of his life.

Hope you all enjoy this....
