It Located on the west bank of the Bhagirathi, Ambika Kalna (popularly known as Kalna). Ambika Kalna is at times  called as the “Town of Temple”. Dedicated to the goddess of power, Maa Kali, these temples are built in typical aatchala style. During the reign of Shashanka in 7th century, a hyper naval-base was founded at Kalna. While Lakshman Sen was the ruler of Saptagram, Murari Sharma was supposed to rule over Kalna in the period of Hindu rulers. Ikhtiyaruddin Bin Baktiyar Khalji passed one night in the guise of a horse merchant and had a start from Kalna to invade Nadia and ultimately won over it in 1204 A.D.
