The goddess of death

In the Southern part of Calcutta stands the temple of Kalighat. Entirely devoted to Kali, an important divinity in West Bengal, sacrifices of goats are still performed to honor it. Therefore, red is the dominant color of the temple,as well as surrounding neighborhood. Kali won many battles and would drink the blood of its enemies. What a goddess to worship !
