There are a number of Shiv mandir in Kolkata. Some are pretty old. I am concentrating only on the temples of north Kolkata. Today I shall be discussing on three such old Shiva temples of the area.
Ganga is a sacred river of India. The lower course of the river was somewhat different from what it is today. At a place near Tribeni (in Hooghly district of West Bengal), the river branched into three waterways – Saraswati (in south west direction), Jamuna (in south east direction) and Hooghly (in the middle).
