Dhakeshwari Temple, Dhaka City
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Witness the rich history of Dhakeshwari Temple in the center of the city, where modern architecture meets an ancient religion. Outside the main building, see the sacred altar where people pay "puja" (worship) to the goddess Durga. Inside the complex, temples reflect an eclectic mix of architectural styles thanks to being built at different times, as well as various renovations throughout the complex's history. It's widely believed that the main temple was built in the 12th century, although this remains unconfirmed, with some even assuming the Hindu temple used to be a Buddhist pagoda. See the tombs of some saints, as well as the magnificent goddess statue, as you explore the main temple's interior.

Day by day,the area is just decreasing due to grabbing of land by land encroachers.Once upon a time,it had a huge area, so need to take proper care of it.Please,be aware of the high price of the goods outside the temple.Transportation system need to be improved as availability of vehicles is one of the worst scenario.Be aware,of your valuable items as there are frequent cases of theft.However,don't forget to hit the bell while entering the temple.Thanks 😊
