This temple is visited by hundreds of people each day, most specially Tantriks, it's right on the pilgrimage trail to Varanasi. It's a 'shaktipeeth', which means it's supposed to be a seat of female power. What you'll see amongst the throngs is a statue of the Goddess Kali covered in floral offerings and other decorations. What you should know is that the temple is considered to be an embodiment of love and benediction.
