BANGLADESH, March 26, 2021 (Malaysia Sun): Bangladesh has renovated the Jeshoreshwari temple in Satkhira ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit during which he will offer prayers. Jeshoreshwari Kali Temple is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to the Goddess Kali. The temple is located in Ishwaripur–a village in Shyam Nagar, Upazila of Satkhira. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first visit to any country since the Covid 19 pandemic. The Kali temple in Satkhira has been repaired and decorated ahead of the Prime Minister’s visit. The temple had been kept closed for a long time since the renovation, but now it is fully decked out before the arrival of Prime Minister Modi.
According to Hindu mythology, the Jeshoreshwari temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peeths, scattered across India and neighboring countries. The name Jeshoreshwari means Goddess of Jeshore. On the last day of his visit, Prime Minister Modi will fly to Ishwaripur village and offer puja at the temple, which is believed to have been built by a brahmin named Anari in the latter part of the 12th century. The Goddess resides there in the form of Devi Jashoreshwari and Lord Shiva appears as Chanda.
