Saturday, 16 March 2013





Most of the tourist spots are somewhere around the other side of Shalbon Bihar(শালবন বিহার) of Comilla(কুমিল্লা). But this small temple is quite isolated from those places. This is at the southern end of the Lalmai Hill(লালমাই পাহাড়). That's why mostly the devoted people use to go here. Very few tourists like us use to go there.


This temple is located at the top of a hillock and you have to climb there using the stairs. Its tiresome to reach at the top. But don't worry, you'll have the whole stairs is covered with evergreen trees. And at any stages, you can have a break by supporting your body on the railing of the stairs. You can see a long distance from there as you have already climbed a few.


The temple premise is mainly having two temples. Each of those are having two small compartments are joined together(considered as single one). Left side temple is the Shiv Mondir(শিব মন্দির) and the right side temple is Chondi Mondir(চন্ডি মন্দির).


We went there from Laksham(লাকসাম) and after visiting, we have headed towards the Moynamoti(ময়নামতি) through the Poduar Bazar(পদুয়ার বাজার). We have used local bus services through out this journey to save money.


How to Go:

First you have to come at the Lalmai Bazar(লালমাই বাজার). From the bazaar, its 10 taka auto rickshaw fare for each person. GPS of the temple is (23°21'9.62"N, 91° 7'52.42"E).


There is a bus(Bolaka, বলাকা) use to run through a road which is exactly beside the temple. You can take that bus from the Poduar Bazar(পদুয়ার বাজার) of Comilla Bishwa road(কুমিল্লা বিশ্ব রোড). Its 15 taka per person and around 15 minutes of bus ride.
