Following a pick-up from your hotel, drive by air-conditioned vehicle to the Kali Temple in Kalighat, one of the oldest neighborhoods of South Kolkata. Consecrated to the goddess Shakti, the temple is visited by Hindus from all over India, who treat it as their mother.

Continue to the Calcutta Jain Temple, a complex of 4 temples dedicated to Jainism, one of the world’s most ancient religions. Admire the mirror-inlaid pillars of the Pareshnath Jain Temple, and the beautiful fountains and reservoir full of fish.

The next temple on your tour is the majestic Dakshineswar Kali Temple on the eastern banks of the Hooghly River. Built by a Kali devotee and philanthropist in 1855, the striking building boasts 12 shrines to Shiva. Cross by boat to Belur Math, notable for fusing Hindu, Christian, and Islamic motifs.
