So the day I went to the Dakshineswar Kali Temple we took a boat ride (like the one in this picture) across the Hooghly River to the Belur Math. We boarded the boat at the ghat you see here. A ghat is the series of steps that take you down to the river. As you can see here, the ghats are used not used for boarding boats but also for bathing in the river. The Hooghly is a major river way for Kolkata and all of West Bengal.
It was at the top of this ghat that I encountered the monkey's just hanging out.
