Introduction :

Tarakeshwar is very old and famous shiv temple near Kolkata. For details do google search.

How to go there from kolkata by road:

1. Go to Nivedita setu
Option 1 . BT road : go to dunlop and their move to Nivedita Setu
Option 2 . Belgaria expressway : Join the expressway near airport and drive straight to Nivedita setu

2. Cross Nivedita setu ( 2 min)
After crossing the river Nivedita setu mergerd to NH6 (Durgapur expressway). The road condition is excellent. RS 30 toll tax for cars.

3. Continue on NH6 (10-20 min)
After 10 minutes you will be in dankuni tollway , pay Rs 35 and continue driving. Ask the people in the tollway about the distance of the crossing where you have to take left turn for Tarakeshwar. Sorry I forgot the distance. But there are very few crossings in this expressway.

4. Take left turn and drive straight (20-30 min)
At the required crossing take left. You will be in a state highway. There are potholes in the road, but the green fields of both the side nullify that. Tarakeshwar is 20/30 minutes drive from here. You don't have to take any more turn.

About 10 KM before Traleshwar there is a Math (resting place with temples) on the left side. You may have a stop. Continue driving , ask roadside people about where you have to stop for the temple in tarakeshwar.

Have a happy Journey.

Tips :
Don't go in the month of Shravan (Mid July to Mid August), toooooo much devotees go there.

You have to ask for the price before taking anything from any shopkeeper or allow a panda to perform any activity. Otherwise they will ask unreasonable.
