Rani Rashmoni Statue


"In Memory Of"

Rani Rashmoni Devi is widely respected as an important contributor to the development of Kolkata. Married to a rich zamindar, Babu Rajachandra Das, Rani Rashmoni took over the family business after the death of her husband. However, due to her deep belief in religion, she continued to live a simple life, mostly devoting herself to the good of the people. She widely contributed to the construction of bathing ghats like Babu Ghat, Nimtola Ghat and Ahiritola Ghat that are still considered important landmarks of the city. She also contributed to the development of the National Library of India and Presidency College. Her constant defiance against British interference with religion saw a rise in her popularity among the people of Kolkata. Her love for goddess Kali is evident as you enter the Dakshineshwar Kali Temple, which she founded. A shrine in pristine white in the middle of the temple courtyard honors this brave woman.
