Calcutta the seat of Saktipitha and centre of hectic sociopolitical activities is justly famous for its religious catholocity and universality of spirit. It contains hundreds of small and big shrines in and out of its bounds. Though Sakteism predominates over others, all religions and every sect find their places of worship. But it is a pity that very few separate, independent Sivaalayas of great eminence and antiquity are found justifying its supremacy. Of course, some temples are housing the portraits or images of Lord Siva, but not the Sivalinga of stupendous size. It is only in the Dakshineswar Kali temple, big Sivalingas in separate minishrines are housed. And to ! there are twelve exclusive shrines, each enshrining a modest size of Sivalinga and is receiving regular prayers. This Dhakshineswara Kali temple is very near the Belur Math, but separated by the river Hooghly, and 20 km off the Hourah station enjoying taxi, auto, tonga and bus services. There is another one called Bangeswara Mahadev temple near Hourah.
