KALI MA OF CULCUTTA
The Prime seat of Sakteism

Calcutta was the centre of Sakti Upasana, and from here illustrious Sakti saints, like Chandidas, Ramaprasad, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa published to the world the glory of Sakti Cult and turned the entire Bengal into a Sakti pitha of enternal importance. It is this Calcutta, the seat of Kali Ma, whose ardent adorers Ramakrishna Paramahamsa sent abroad his disciple Vivekananda, the religious leader of interplanetary reputation, whose voice thundering, silenced the baseless claims of superiority of some religions in the Parliament of, Religions at Chicago, that brought undying fame to Hinduism, the Mother of Sakteism. It is this Calcutta, a corrupt form of Kalighat, as presumed, became more popular, but at the same time acquired noteriety for Narabali, an inhuman practice of human sacrifice to Mothe Kali, besides animals of all kinds.

Renowned as the prime centre of Sakti Upasana, enshrining Mother Kali in several of its manifestations, eulogised in literature as a famous yatrasthala inscribed as the hot-bed of political intrigues of the aliens; famous for producing several luminaries in every field of human activity, noted for broad casting dynamism in realms of religion and literature; this city of Calcutta, the seat of Mother Kali has been attracting people in lakhs since time immemorial.
