Chachra Shiva Temple



Chachra Shiva Temple is a 17th century built Hindu temple that is located at Chachra of Jessore district. This temple is also known as Chachra Shib Temple or Chachra Shib Mandir. It is located exactly beside the Jessore-Benapol highway. This is a two stored Shiva temple that is having a single Rotno (basically the second store) at the top.

Chachra Shiva Temple is having a stylish outer wall at the three sides out of four. Most of those are old fashioned but simple terracotta. It was left carelessly for many years. But recently the department of Bangladesh Archaeology renovated the temple and declared this as an archaeological asset of Bangladesh. From the inscription of the temple it's found that the Temple was build by someone named Monohor Ray during 1696.
