Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived on a visit to Bangladesh, arrived at the Jeshoreswari Kali temple on Saturday morning and offered prayers. This temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas of Maa Durga. Meanwhile, PM Modi also offered a crown on the idol of Maa Kali. This crown is silver and has been gilded. This wreath was prepared by the artists after three weeks of hard work. However, the Prime Minister also suffered from a major loophole in this temple.
After visiting the temple, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “I heard that when a Mother Kali worship fair takes place here, a large number of devotees come from across the border. and also from here. A community room is required here. It should be a multipurpose room so that when people come for Kali Puja they are also used and people come here for social, religious, educational occasions and this community hall becomes a shelter for everyone in the event of a disaster , especially during the cyclone. .
This mother Kali’s temple, located in Ishwarpur in the Satkhira district of Bangladesh, was beautifully decorated before PM Modi’s darshan. Even before his visit to Bangladesh began, Prime Minister Modi had tweeted that he was eagerly awaiting the worship of Mother Kali in the ancient temple Jeshoreswari Kali, one of the 51 Shaktipeeth. Security arrangements have also been made for PM Modi’s visit to this temple.
