Kali Bari Mandir Delhi

Kali Bari Mandir of New Delhi is dedicated to Goddess Kali. It is quite small in size and quite modest in its design. The temple holds particular meaning for the Bengali people residing in the city, particularly at the time of Durga Puja, held in the month of October-November each year. Throughout that time, the temple becomes the middle for celebrations and is busy by devotees of all ages, in huge numbers. A huge Peepal tree grows inside the temple and is considered to be quite sacred.

Devotees coming to the Kali Bari Mandir tie a red thread around the bark of the tree while making a wish. If the desire gets satisfied, they approach back to the temple to untie the thread. A wonderful fact about the temple is that here, liquor is offered to the Goddess. Located near the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir, the Kali Bari temple is also visited by the North Indians staying in the capital city. While not affected like the numerous other temples in Delhi, it still attracts devotees from far and wide.
