about 108 shiva mandir

The uniqueness of  108 Shiva Mandir  is its selling point. Two rows of small hut shaped structures, each regarded as a single shiva temple, make up this whole temple complex. These temples total 108, each having a deity of Lord Shiva within it. Legend says that Rani Bishnukumari (widow of Raja Tilakchand of bardhaman) received divine instructions to construct such a temple in her dreams.


She ordered the structures to be 108 in number, built in the similar styles of the traditional Bengali mud huts. The temple saw completion in the year 1788. Each year, on the auspicious day of Mahashivratri, the locals celebrate the occasion with a week long fair, attracting huge crowds to this place.
