    It is interesting yo observe the way Indian PM Modi performs puja.

    Many Hindus do not know for Sivan 3 namaskarams for vishnu it is 4 for devi it is 5.

    And he offers pancha mamaskaras like a devoted hindu.
    For many the existence of this temple itself a revelation.
    Jeshoreshwari Kali Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Goddess Sakthi located in Ishwaripur, a village in Shyamnagar upazila of Satkhira.

    The name "Jeshoreshwari" means "Goddess of Jeshore". This temple is considered as one of Shakti Peethas in Indian Subcontinent.

    Being one of the 51 Shakti Peethas of Hindu Mythology, this temple is one of the holiest sites for devotees of the Shakti sect of Hinduism.
    It is believed the temple was built by a brahmin named Anari. He created a 100-door temple for the Jeshoreshwari Peeth. But exact date of construction is not known.

    The Temple was extensively renovated by Lakshman Sen and Pratapaditya in their reigning periods in the late 13th Century AD.

    After 1971, the structure got crumbled. Now only the pillars of the original temple remain.

    The temple is visited by pilgrims from all over, irrespective of sectarian differences. Worship is done by the priest every Saturday and Tuesday at noon time.

    But before 1971, there was a daily routine of worship. Every year on the day of Kali puja, the present Caretakers of the temple conduct a ceremony. There is also a Mela taking place around the temple compound.
