About Us

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan said “No nation is healthy that parts company with its tradition.” Culture is an attitude of mind, an inclination of spirit and those who yearn for it, should sit in the presence of nobility, and see the highest reach and scope of the spirit of mankind. Today, Indian culture is in a stage of transition, which is to be brought into reality only through Schools of thought and Cultural organizations.

The Residential and Industrial town NOIDA was established in 1976 under the administration of NEW OKHLA INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY i.e NOIDA. Initially a few residential Sectors were developed. A few enthusiastic Bengalis driven by the dream of promoting our homeland’s Bengali Culture, acclaimed to be one of the richest culture in the world, took initiative to organize Durga puja in Noida with main objective of bringing all the Bengalis of Noida under one banner and to establish a forum for spreading, practicing and further developing our traditional culture through generations together.

As a first Step, Shree Shree Durga Puja was celebrated for the first time in Noida under the banner of ‘Noida Durga Puja Samiti’, in Oct 1983 at Noida Club, Sector 27. Subsequently ‘Noida Bengali Cultural Association’ i.e. NBCA was established & registered in 1984 under the Societies Registration Act with the aim of promoting our religious, cultural, philanthropic traditions and values, fostering a true sprit of charity, brotherhood & humanity and to create an atmosphere persuasive to the religious, social & cultural development of residents of Noida and adjoining areas.

In May 1986 a land in sector 26 was allotted to the Association by NOIDA. On 16th Aug 1986, foundation stone for Construction of temple was laid by Swami Swanandaji maharaj, Secretary, Ram Krishna Mission, New Delhi.

With great efforts, a small temple was constructed and an idol of Goddess Kali and a Shiva Lingam was installed in the sanctum sanctorum on Kali puja day (Deepabali) in Nov 1988, and thus the rituals of daily worship of the deities began in the Kalibari.

With the passing of days with absolute dedication and sacrifice of the members, NBCA grew very fast. Two story temples was constructed and new idol of Goddess Kali, made of Ashta dhatu (eight metals), made by Shri Paresh Paul of Krishna Nagar (west Bengal), was installed along with Shiva Lingam and was inaugurated on 13th May 1994.

The Construction of the temple further progressed. Ashta dhatu moorty of Lord Krishna & Radha was installed at the sanctum on 14th June 1999, with all religion fanfare.

Celebration of Durga Puja by NDPS, a sub- committee of NBCA is acknowledged as one of the biggest of its kind in Delhi and NCR.

We convey our Gratitude & Regards to Patrons, Well wishers and all our Members for their generous contribution & untiring efforts for progress of our Association and Kalibari.
