It is famous for its association with the great religious thinker Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who achieved spiritual vision here and preached the unity of all religions. He used to serve as the head priest here. This temple was built by Rani Rashmoni between 1847 and 1855. The 12- spired temple with its enormous courtyard has a shrine to Goddess Kali in the center, surrounded by other temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and Radha Krishna. It is a world famous place of pilgrimage.
