# The Chinese Kali Temple in Kolkata will scintillate your taste buds

A Kali Temple in Kolkata? That’s like finding sand on the beach. So, you must be wondering why this Kali temple found a place in our list? Well, the answer lies in the scrumptious ‘bhog’ this temple offers its devotees. Ever heard or seen noodles being served for prasad in a temple? We know the answer and that is why we thought of putting this Chinese Kali Temple in this list.

The Chinese Kali Temple is visited by the local Bengalis and Chinese community in Kolkata alike. The legend says that about 60 years ago, the site of the temple just had black stones with sindoor where the locals prayed. There the parents of a 10-year chinese boy who was on the verge of death prayed here day and night for their son’s recovery. After their son recovered from the illness, this place became very revered for the Chinese community in Kolkata. A granite temple was constructed at the site and the black stones still lie inside the temple.
