The Kali temple of Kasba also known as Kasba Kali Bari is about 27 kms from Agartala and is situated on a hillock over looking a wide pool of water called Kamala Sagar. The image of the goddess resembles that of Dasabhuja Durga or Mahishasurmardini. Made up of sand stone, the goddess is worshipped in the temple as Kali and the presence of a Shivalinga at its feet has led to the naming of the temple as Kalibari. Thousands of pilgrims from different parts of the country and neighbouring country Bangladesh visit this sacred temple during festival. The huge Kamalasagar Lake situated here was excavated by Maharaja Dhanya Manikya Bahadur in the late 15th Century AD., and the Kamalasagar Kali Temple at the top of the hillock dates back to the 17th Century.
