Maa Phire Elo (মা ফিরে এলো), literally meaning “Return of the Goddess” is a Durga Museum located inside the Rabindra Sarobar Complex in south Kolkata. Durga Puja in Kolkata is often considered as the Greatest Carnival of Earth.

So the city was in need for a Durga Museum, in came Maa Phire Elo (মা ফিরে এলো),
