Marriage In Kalighat Kali Temple


Marriage in Kalighat Kali Temple—Kalighat is a locality situated in South Kolkata, India Kalighat is also densely populated and vibrant—with a rich history of cultural intermingling with the various foreign incursions into the area over time.The World famous Kalighat Kali Temple dedicated to the Goddess Kali is situated in Kalighat and is regarded as one of the 51 Shakti Peeth of India, where the various parts of Sati’s body are said to have fallen, in the course of Shiva's Rudra Tandava. Kalighat represents the site where the toes of the right foot of Dakshayani or Sati fell. Legend has it that a devotee discovered a luminant ray of light coming from the Bhāgirathi river bed, and upon investigating its source came upon a piece of stone carved in the form of a human toe. He also found a Svayambhu Lingam of Nakuleshwar Bhairav nearby and started worshiping Kali in the midst of a thick jungle.The Shakti here is known as Kalika, while the Bhairav is Nakulesh.It is a very famous place and a pilgrimage for Shakta (Shiva and Durga/Kali/Shakti worshippers) followers within the Hindu religion. The temple is visited by pilgrims from all over India irrespective of sectarian differences. The thousands of pilgrims who flock daily to the Kalighat temple treat Kali very much like a human mother, bringing her their domestic problems and prayers for prosperity, and returning when their prayers are fulfilled to express their gratitude. Their attitude towards the Goddess is guided by their religious traditions and training, their spiritual and intellectual capacities, and the guidance of their temple priests.In Kalighat The Goddess Kali Murti is incomplete. Only the face of the  Goddess Kali was made first. The hands, made of gold and silver, the tongue, the Shiva Murti and all the jewellery were added over the years.On Snan Yatra day,while giving the divine Mother the ceremonial bath, the priests tie their eyes with cloth coverings. On auspicious occasions like Kali Puja,Durga Puja,Poilabaisakh the Bengali New Year day and Sankranti large number of devotees throng the place with offerings.


Sosthi TalaThis is a rectangular altar about three feet high bearing a small cactus plant. Beneath the tree, on an altar three stones are placed side by side – left to right representing the Goddesses "Sosthi""Sitola", and "Mongol Chandi". This sacred spot is known as Sosthi Tala or Monosha Tala. This altar was constructed by Gobinda Das Mondal in 1880. The place of the altar is the Samadhi of Brahmananda Giri. Here all the priests are female. No daily worship or offering of Bhog (food offering) is done here. The Goddesses here are considered as part of Maa Kali.

The water from this tank is regarded as sacred as that of the Ganges. Efforts at draining the water from the tank for cleaning has failed in the past showing the possibility of a subterranean with Adi Ganga.
