The Queen of Bhutan Ashi Dorji Wangchuk and her daughter paid a visit to the famous Goddess Kali temple at Kalighat here on Saturday morning.

The queen, who was in a cheerful mood, offered puja as the police threw a tight security cordon around her.

Not willing to take any chances, the authorities closed the temple to the ordinary devotees from 9 am, till the time the royals left the premises.

With Saturdays traditionally attracting large number of people to the temple, hundreds of ordinary devotees were seen resenting the "harassment" caused to them.
