Danteshwari was previously called Goddess Manikeshwari by the Nagas who ruled from 760 to 1324 A.D. One of the Shakti Piths of the Hindus, and located in the Gole Bazar area, the Temple was re-created before 1947. Divided into four sections – the Garbh Griha, Maha Mandap, Mukhya Mandap and Sabha Mandap, it houses idols brought from Bursar.

My family and I visited the temple in the early morning hours but there was quite a long queue even at that time. The wonderful carvings and beautiful architecture of the building depict stories from the Vedas and Upanishads.

The temple is an ancient one and worth to visit which is surrounded by two rivers and a garden. Can spend atleast 2/3 hours by paying obeisance at the temple and idling at the garden and rivers.
