The Famous #DakshineshwarMandir which houses Maa Bhabatarini was founded by #RaniRashmoni. It is said that when she was about to start for a pilgrimage to Benaras, the divine #MaaKali intervened & asked her to build a Mandir on the banks of #Ganga. +
#RaniRashmoni bought 58 bigha of land in 1847. 8 yrs later on 1855 the Mandir was completed. the land resembled a hump of a tortoise, 1 part belonged to a European & the other part was Muslim kabaristan, perfect place for Tantra Sadhana.
#RaniRashmoni built a Navaratna mandir, 12 Shiv Mandirs with JyotirLingams, a Vishnu Mandir and a Nattmandir on the land. a LakshmiNarayan Shila was placed in the Navaratna Mandir as per her late husband’s (Babu Raj Chandra Das) wish.
