Photographer's Note

The Dakhineswar Kali Temple built by Rani Rashmoni who was a devotee of Kali. This temple is located in Dakhineswar. Dakhineswar is situated on the eastern bank of Hooghly river. 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.
