You should go here if you want to give a pooja to the goddess. Be careful of the pandas who fleece the people. It is also very crowded. Other than that it is a ok place to be.

If you are religious person you should definitely go here. Else give it a miss. The place is crowded, dirty and full of scamsters out there to get your money. The pandas hovering around should be avoided else they will surely rip you off.

I did not see any ramp on the way to the idol. My advice is to avoid this temple and visit Dhakshineswar temple which is much more better than this and no touts and goondas here.
