What to expect

Kolkata is the land of the Goddess Kali, and this journey through a region of temples and spirituality will open your eyes to the sanctity of the local worship and prayer rituals of the culture. Your day tour will take you to a large blend of sacred places located throughout the city, as an English speaking guide tells you of their history and shows you the majesty of the architecture. It begins with a visit to the Kalighat, a famous temple dedicated to Goddess Kali. Kalighat is located on the old area of the Hooghly River and is considered sacred to the goddess. So much that the city's name is said to be derived from it. Following this, you head to the Jain Temples. As you explore the complex of four temples, you'll see a sacred lamp that has burned inside the sanctum sanctorum continuously since the initiation of the temple since 1867. The most revered Dakshineswar Temple, one of the most sacred of the region's temples in Kolkata, is the next stop, and you'll learn of its history of being where Rama Krishna Paramhamsa attained his spiritual vision. The tour rounds out with a crossing over the Hooghly River, one of the most sacred to the Hindus, down which holy water flows. Should you opt for it at your own expense, you can enjoy some authentic local food for lunch before getting dropped off back at the hotel to end your tour.
