Dhakeshwari Temple, Dhaka City

(150+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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. Use our Dhaka City tourist route planner to arrange your visit to Dhakeshwari Temple and other attractions in Dhaka City.
