The bustling city of Kolkata has many layers within itself which has its own flavor,colour and culture.Kalighat is one such locality which though had visited many a times earlier, never much explored. I got the opportunity to go on a slow paced evening trail around the Kalighat Kali Temple during the recent brief stay in the city. Here are few impressions clicked from my mobile Moto G.
