Dakhineshwar Kali Temple, Kolkata
We were so close yet so far! We were there at the door steps of the temple yet we couldn’t gain entry to temple.
Bad planning! I knew the temple timings well, but what I didn’t anticipate was the long queue of devotees! They were everywhere there… all bathed, wrapped in wet towel, carrying flowers and other offerings for the Goddess. I thought I was early, but 6 in the morning is not early for Kolkata. By its standards we were late!
Had I decided to stand in queue the plan for rest of the day planned for sight seeing in Kolkata would have gone topsy-turvy. Murmuring prayers in my heart I exited the temple after taking a few pictures.
