CALCUTTA - DHAKSHINESWAR MANDIR

This is housing as many as eight Saivate divinities, like Vinayaka, Mother Parvathi, Subrahmanya etc., in befitting niches around the main shrine and are worshipped according to Bengali traditions. Among the periodical festivals Jhulanotsava celebrated with unprecedented pomp and splendour with bhajans, discourses, Rasalila etc draws huge crowds. The devotees' piety then seems vying with their gaiety. The very place set up in silvan environs has such a magnetic pull that many adorers turn aesthetes and visit frequently deeming it both a picnic spot and place of worship. It is a modern one constructed in 1953, in memory of late Sri Banshidar and was inaugurated by the state former Chief Minister Dr. Bidhan Chadra.

It lies at Salkia School Road, Hourah and is accessible by bus, auto, tonga etc.
