This Chinese Kali temple of Tangra was built about 20 years ago with donations from both Chinese and Bengali people. Before the temple was built, at this place, for the last 60 years, only Hindus worshiped the Mother Goddess under a tree. According to the local people, many years ago a Chinese boy became seriously ill. No treatment is working on this 10-year-old boy, one day his parents made him lie down under the same tree and prayed to the Mother Goddess.
The boy was cured miraculously and since then this temple has become a center of faith for the Hindu community as well as the Chinese community. When the Chinese people started coming to the temple, they also started offering food to the Mother Goddess according to their culture. Since then, noodles, chops etc. began to be offered to the mother here. While coming to this temple, Chinese people take off their shoes like other devotees and then come inside and bow to the Mother Goddess. Although the style of saluting him is similar to that of China.
