The Explorer's Quest... A Visit to an ancient Kali Temple in Mahanad Hooghly, Bengal



Visited once again, this beautiful 187 year old temple in the vicinities of my hometown at a village known as Mahanad, Hooghly today. An affluent resident of the village, Krishna Chandra Neogy, is said to have built this temple after having a Divine Dream of Goddess Brahmamoyee way back in 1830 A D and the tradition is well maintained by his successors to this day. History tells us that the Rani Rashmani of Janbazar Calcutta was greatly inspired by the structure of the temple along with the deity so much so that the Famous Dakshineswar temple which she later built on the banks of the Ganga had a striking similarity.
