Bengal, the land of Sakteism is packed to its bounds thousands of shrines, big and small enshrining Mother Sakti in its mutifarious names and forms. There is no village or town without a shrine dedicated to Goddess Sakti. Saktam permeates the whole state, and life seems worthless, if it does not adore it either with rituals due or without them. The Chandi mantaps found in every place of habitation reflects the people's of immense devotional favour and attachment to Mother Sakti. And in many places there are groups of temples dedicated to almost all denominations of divinities but Sakti dominates over all in number and size.

The town Bansberia is deservedly famous for its shrines dedicated to Vasudev and Hanseswari. And they are profusely adorned with terrocota carvings, the dominant taste of the people and their culture. The ancient Hanseswari temple is an excellent piece of architectural design prevalent in those days Though modest in dimension. it is quite imposing with sculptural adornments. The Mother gained reputation for her easy accessibility and the sure refuge to the. pious bhaktas Prayers in Bengali fashion are offered everyday and the periodical festivals are celebrated with due religious favour It is worthy of visitation by every devout devotee worth the attribute.

It is 47 km off Calcutta. accessible by bus.
