Sydney Kalibari came into existence on 7th September 2006, first of its kind in Southern Hemisphere, in the line of “Simla Kalibari or Delhi Kalibari”. A few members of the Community of New South Wales have registered above organization as a Non-profit, Charity organization where the office bearers work on voluntary basis. The centre will provide and promote socio-cultural & religious events between the Indian and Australian communities which shall unequivocally at all times be, non-political, non-profit, and non-sectarian. It would be a place where we can celebrate all our socio-religious functions and activities, promote basic teachings of Hinduism of “Vedic” culture (clean, pure and simple way of life) and through the concept of Divine Mother – (a Kali temple, called “Kalibari”)
A brass Ma Kali idol (‘Ashta-dhatu’) – hand-crafted in, Kolkata, India, and a black marble Shiva Lingam were ordered and shipped to Sydney in July 2008.
