How did the temple establish?

Once a Chinese boy fell ill and doctors also were unable to cure him. His parents brought him near the tree with those black stones under it and laid him there. They prayed for his health and after a few days, a miracle occurred and the boy recovered. That is when, the boy’s family decided to build a temple there and since then, it’s been known as the Chinese Kali temple.  

The current version of this granite walled temple was built around 19 years ago but those black stones are still there along with two traditional Kali statues. Apart from the Hindus, the Chinese who stay in Kolkata and visitors from China also pay a visit to this temple. The special feature of this temple is that the bhog and prasad here is served in the form of dishes like noodles, momos, rice and chopsuey.
