The story goes that one priest slipped while carrying this image. Krishna’s foot got broken and, since a broken image should not be worshipped, pandits recommended to immerse it in the Ganga. The Rani, who built the Dakshineswar Kali Temple was heartbroken because she had become very attached to this image of Krishna. Sri Ramakrishna came to the rescue. He said,” If you son in law breaks his leg, will you throw him into the Ganges?” Sri Ramakrishna himself fixed this image.
