Hanseswari Temple, Bansberia (Part 2)

Visited the famous Hanseswari temple of Bengal on 26 December last.
Hanseswari temple is a Hindu
Temple of goddess kali in the town
of Banshberia at Hooghly District,
Indian state of West Bengal .
Basberia presently an industrial
town positioned in between Bandel
and Tribeni. The temple complex
has another temple — Ananta
Basudeba temple — besides the
main temple. Also near is the
Swanbhaba Kali temple built by
Raja Nrisinha Deb Mahasay in
1788. The Hanseswari temple has
a distinctive architecture different
from the usual pattern present in
this area, consisting 13 minars or
Ratnas, each built as a blooming
lotus bud. The inner structure of
the building resembles human
anatomy.It was started by Raja
Nrisingha Deb Mahasay and later
completed by his widow wife Rani
Sankari.
The architecture of the temples is
the representation of " Tantrik
Satchakrabhed".
