Tripura Sundari temple

Tripura Sundari devi Temple is a spiritual place goddess Sundari related to Hindu Goddess Kali and Lord Shiva. The environment was very calm ambience and peaceful also well maintained. I feel it is a hassle-free experience for temple visitors or tourists.

At the temple gate, there is a small shop too on the premises. Where anyone can buy prasad, flowers, incense sticks and candles for Tripura Sundari devi ’s puja offering. The Place and the Puja they did was really heart touching and satisfying.

The temple opening time is Morning 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. and evening 05:00 pm to 08:00 p.m. Here almost all kind of rituals are performed like Shraddha, batsarik, marriage, etc and all the rituals are performed in a perfect manner.

Price Chart for all the rituals please contact the mandir office. I think The Archaeological Survey of India should take care of this place. Because many archaeological pieces of evidence are available here which can reveal many new facts about the ancient history of Bengal. For going to this place, take an auto from Garia to Boral and get down to the maa Tripura Sundari temple stoppage.
