‪This temple is approximately an hour plus drive from Kolkata but definitely worth the time and distance.
It is nestled quietly in a village. We used Google maps to reach the temple but in case you cannot find your way, just ask a local and they will gladly help.
Such a beautiful ancient temple. Terracotta. Surrounded by lush greenery this is a must visit for history loving travellers. ‬

‪Great place for a half day tour ! It is not like any other temple, it has an unique architecture.The main deity is Sri Hamseshwari Ma, made of wood. There is a temple adjacent to the main temple Anant Vasudeva Temple. It is also an old temple of Lord Vishnu.‬

‪Can be developed as a good tourist spot. Needs attention from govt. Though the temple is very well maintained. ‬

‪This temple is the symbol of our small town Bansberia. The architecture is unique and Goddess Maa Hanseswari (avatar of Maa kali)is worshipped here. It is also has Basudeva temple within the temple premises where u can find amazing terracotta sculpture. This place is a must visit if you come for a day trip at Bandel..bansberia is just 5kms away from Bandel. The prasad bhog is also very delicious and is available at 40rs voucher per head which is to be collected within 10.30am and by 1pm you can sit and have the lunch.‬

‪HANSESWARI TEMPLE, Banshberia , Hooghly Dist.
Amidst green lawns with the reflected beauty,
An unique six storeyed shrine dedicated to Shiva Shakti.
An unusual architecture reminiscent of
the onion dome church of Moscow.....
13 towers with a blooming lotus on each peak.
Goddess Hanseswari a manifestation of Kali
In all her resplendent glory in the inner sanctum.
The inner structure of the abode built on Tantric principles,
Follows the structure of the human body.
Gracing the landscape since the early 19 century,
Started by Raja Nrishinghadeb Roy and completed by Rani Shankari.
The beauty complemented by the terracotta temple of Anant Vasudeva nearby,
The serenity enhanced by the picturesque rural settings.
Friendly polite people of the village to guide,
Softly spoken tones in keeping with the peaceful silence.
Beauty Architecture Heritage Faith it has it all

‪We had visited the temple on many occasions earlier, last we visited in Dec'18 for a quick day trip from Kolkata. It took around 2 hrs to reach from Kolkata. The Hangseswari temple was closed in the afternoon, when we reached. Devotees can buy coupon for bhog by 10:30 AM.
We explored the adjacent Anant Vasudev temple and felt amazed at the intricate terracotta work done on the temple.‬

‪Nice place @ Bansberia near Kalyani across the Bhagirathi Hooghly about 50 km from Kolkata. The temple is unique because of its dome shaped architecture akin to Russian architecture. The mother Godess is the presiding deity. Ananta Narayan Basudeb Mandir is a lovely terracotta temple situated in the same complex.‬

‪Bansberia is a small town on the west bank of Hooghly River in the district of Hooghly, West Bengal, India. The place is famous for a large temple named HANSESWARI. There is another temple in the same complex named The ANANTA BASUDEB TEMPLE. These two temples make Bansberia a place of worth to visit for those interested in evolution of temple architecture.

HANSESWARI TEMPLE :-

Built in the early 19th century, the temple is dedicated to Goddess Hanseswari, a manifestation of Goddess Kali. The architecture of this temple, which is truly exceptional in all forms, is the prime attraction of this place. The complex of the temple stands at a height of 27.5 meters and has a total number of 13 towers. The peak of each tower represents a lotus flower. The idol of the presiding four-armed goddess is made up of blue neem-wood. It is a six-storey shrine that follows the structure of a human body consisting of Ira, Pingala, Bajraksha, Sushumna and Chitrini.The unusual architecture of the Hangseswari temple represents the “Tantrik Satchakrabhed”. The construction of the temple was started by Raja Nrishinghadeb Roy but was later completed by his wife Rani Shankari in the year 1814. Since the temple has both the deities of Shiva and Shakti, it has been named as “Hansheswari”.

ANANTA BASUDEBA TEMPLE:-
Ananta Basudev Temple: - It is a temple of Lord Krishna in the Hangseswari Teple complex, Bansberia, Hooghly, West Bengal. Built by Raja Rameswar Datta in 1679. This temple is renowned for the exquisite TERRA COTA works on its walls. The tower on the top of the temple is octagonal. The Terracota works depict from the great Indian epics Ramayana and Mahabarata.

‪I had not known about Hanseswari temple and when I saw a photo on the NET I knew I had to go there. Despite being called Hanseswari (literally Goddess of the Swan or Saraswati) this is actually a temple dedicated to Goddess Kali. Hanseswari Temple was completed by Rani Shankari, the young widow of Raja Nrisinghadeb, a follower of the Tantric way of worship.
Taking the Kalyani Expressway was best and it brought us to the Ishwar Chandra Setu or Bridge ...the toll was Rs 10 if I recall. The temple was on the left but the lanes were narrow and winding and the locals kept saying go straight even at T-points!
There is ample parking. There is a paid toilet complex (but be warned...it is just about minimally...adequately clean) Carry hand sanitizers and tissues. This is also where you may have your shoes safely guarded for a small fee.(like INR 2 or something tiny like that) There is provision to buy coupons (INR 35/-) for bhog...it is khichuri (rice and lentil cooked together), a large helping of mixed vegetables, chutney, rice pudding or payasam and crunchy papad...all hygienically packed and systematically distributed. It is more than enough for one person. In case you forgot or did not know about the system you can still queue up and if they have enough left over packs, they will sell it to you but you may not get as many packets as you need. There is a place to throw the empty packets etc. VERY WELL ORGANIZED and CLEAN...I have NEVER seen a temple still in use that is so quiet and so clean. Loved it.
As you walk towards the temple from the parking lot, you see what looks like the entrance of a ruined fort right ahead and a moat (or a water body) on the right...and there are people selling articles of worship...flowers and incense sticks etc. Then you see it the lotus domes sticking proudly above the trees that hide the temple proper. There are 13 domes but no one is allowed to climb these. There are Shiv lingas on the ground floor set in individual niches.The main idol of the Goddess is blue coloured neem wood.
It is an exquisite temple. It will not try to describe it. its history is very interesting too. I bought a book from the temple but the English kind of defeated me...still what little I could decipher was enthralling. Rani Shankari....deserves much more recognition...
There is a gem of a terracotta temple in the same enclosure. It is called the Ananta (Eternal) Basudeb (Vishnu) mandir...the original stone idol was stolen in 1961 but the temple is excellently preserved and still in use. It was constructed by Rameshwar Datta in 1679. People still worship here. I could have spent the entire day looking at the terracotta work.
The temple complex is set in a manicured lawn. The green grass offsets the white of the Hanseswari temple and terracotta colour of the Ananta Basdeb mandir most beautifully. Just outside are the ruins of the palace of the family that built this temple. One building is in relatively better repair still occupied and people may not enter without permission; the other one is practically falling to pieces.
It took us a little over 2 hours to reach by car from Kolkata and we had dwadled on the way. Temple closes for a few hour around noon...so reach early if you want to offer puja. If it is architecture that interests you...you can reach after noon too.
We spread newspaper at the far end of the Parking lot ...in the shade...with grazing goats and cows for company and bird song...and had a most enjoyable picnic lunch (plus one packet of bhog-prasad). There are no decent restaurants here...so do carry food and water...or buy the bhog-prasad. We did not leave litter behind. Neither should you!‬
