Kalighat is one of the main holiest spot of the city. Built in1809, but the place is many centuries older and propably the inspiration for the name of the city. The built is colorful paint and many pilgrims arrive there every day. "Donation" around 50Rs is obligatory if you want to see the Kali image.
Surronding the alleys are full of market stalls. Right next door is the Mother Teresa's home for the dying. Near are some canal with interesting ghats.
Open from 5:00 to 14:00 & 16:00 to 22:00
